Thousands lined the streets on Sunday to watch the Victoria Pride Parade.  The Victoria Pride Society was born from a casual picnic in Beacon Hill Park over 20 years ago and says its mission is based on empowerment. The society has focused on supporting the inclusiveness, accessibility, and diversity of Pride Week events. Today, they are one of a few national Pride Societies who encourage all people to walk the Pride parade route – generating thousands of people ‘proudly’ walking the streets of Victoria for themselves, colleagues, or loved ones.

Here are some photos from the parade:
