An estimated 600,000 people are expected to line the streets in downtown Vancouver today for the Vancouver Pride Parade celebrating diversity, culture, community, and family. Music, dancing, colourful floats, motorcycles, trucks, bicycles, stilt-walkers, children, parents, dogs, and a multitude of mascots filled the streets. The following photos and updates have been pulled from Twitter as the parade takes place:

    I had a great time there and my best part of the day was having a chance to take a photo with Jenna Talackova. She is amazing! Also, greetings so many people, but she made every single one of us feel special.

    I love the vibrant streets of this wonderful city. Watching the pictures what immediately came to my mind was a collection of 20 photos documenting Vancouver’s history that I recently saw in the West Vancouver Archives. It’s just amazing to observe the feel of the city streets now and then and to compare the buildings that have sometimes undergone major transformations as the years passed by.
