We’re back in the office, and back from a weekend of so many Pride Festivities! Our fabulous Community Engagement Coordinator Connie hung out at the Davie Street Block Party, chilled out at the Vancouver Dyke March, and got fired up for Pride Sunday at Sunset Beach!

She and our amazing troupe of volunteers met and flirted with so many festival lovers, our fabulous Community Partners, like VLAFF and Cor Flammae, and made lots of new friends along the way.

Queer Pong was a hit! We gave away some fabulous fun-in-the-sun prizes like frisbees, bubbles, and mini-golf sets, and even tickets to the Festival!

Lots of folks came by to chat with us about the festival, telling us about their favourite past moments, and their highly anticipated moments to come in 2015! Our new brochures were a pleasant surprise; so many people were happy to have all of the festival in their hands and pockets!

An extra special thank you to Suzy, our fabulous volunteer driver for the entire weekend! She helped us load in and out for all of our events during pride and got us where we needed to be with a smile and the warmth of a longtime Festie. We <3 you, Suzy!
