Pride Parade 2012

Remember us from the parade in 2011? Well we were back again this year and had an amazing time! The following is a guest post from Joel (pictured above):

If you’re going to do something, it is important to take pride in it.  Sunday afternoon, August 5th, it was clear to see that everyone dancing on and alongside our ‘English Bay-Watch’ Float was thrilled to be involved with Cactus Club Cafe and Vancouver’s Pride Parade.

Pride parades have come a long way since originating as political marches for gay rights and in the spirit of liberate, educate and celebrate, Vancouver has proved to be quite a celebration indeed.  It is so nice to see so many organizations and corporations showing their connection with the LGBT community.  The energy of the “English Bay Watch Lifeguards” was a definitely a reflection of the thousands of spectators who also came out to support the LGBT community.

Looking forward to next year!
