Big Gay Dog Walk Pride
(Victoria Pride Society)

Pride Week has begun in Victoria!

And to mark the start of Pride week in Victoria, Grace Lore, Parliamentary Secretary for Gender Equity, and MLA’s Spencer Chandra Herbert and Mable Elmore, were joined by representatives from the Victoria Pride Society and the Indian Residential School Survivors Society for the raising of the Pride and Two Spirit flags at the Parliament Buildings at noon.

With a proud, prudent, plethora of Pride events going on, this week will tantalize anyone looking to celebrate themselves and Victoria’s fabulous LGBTQ2S+ community.

From Drag shows to stand up comedy, to DJ’s and dancing, you won’t just be sweating from the record-breaking heat, you’ll be panting from trying to get to all these fantastic events!
