Prince George, B.C. – Pride week in Prince George is underway, as the Rainbow flag has been raised at Prince George City Hall.
The LGBTQ community in Prince George has seen some major advances in achieving respect and recognition in this City.
There was a time when former a former Mayor (Colin Kinsley) refused to sign a Pride Week Proclamation, and now, the City has a Pride rainbow crosswalk, and Councillors routinely take part in the annual Pride Parade.
July 3rd through 9th has been officially proclaimed as Pride week in Prince George “Today, like we do every year, we have an opportunity to recognize diversification in our community” said Mayor Lyn Hall “I think Pride week really shows how diversified our community has become and every year that grows stronger and stronger.”
Pride week will see a pub night this evening at the Westwood, there will be a drag show at the Generator on Friday night, the Pride Parade on Saturday morning at 11, ( leaving from the City Hall Grounds), and a House party on Saturday night.
“We are thrilled with how much the community rallies behind us” said Pride President Stacey Hewlett “We look forward to our Pride weekend and hope everyone comes out.”
