The Pride Parade yesterday was filled with sunshine, smiles, dancing, laughter, and joy as hundreds of floats coasted through downtown to a welcoming crowd.

I spent the duration of the parade in the basket of the London Drugs float with my friend Wendy Hartley. At the end of the day my hand was died red from the rainbow boa and I realized I had been smiling for about 3 hours straight.

John was on the sidelines on Denman as the parade turned off Robson. Members of local and national parliament were on hand along with various organizations, non-profits, businesses, schools, and more. Here is some of what he was able to capture as hundreds of thousands celebrated Pride in Vancouver.

    Elizabeth May – first ELECTED Green Party MP in history. Blair Wilson crossed the floor after being kicked out of the Liberals and was thumped in the 2008 election.
