VIVED is excited to be supporting the Victoria Pride Festival this year!
This event is important to us because we greatly value a diversity of voices and experiences, celebrating our authentic selves, and striving for a world free from discrimination.
It’s also important for us to note that eating disorders and disordered eating disproportionately affect individuals who identify as being in the LGBTQ+ community, but these experiences are often underrepresented.
Join us at the Victoria Pride Festival this year on July 7 from noon till 6 PM in MacDonald Park (212 Niagara Street). We will have a booth and we hope you stop by to say hi.
“The Victoria Pride Society acknowledges that we serve our communities as visitors on the traditional territories of the WSÁNEĆ (Saanich), Lkwungen (Songhees) and Wyomilth (Esquimalt) peoples of the Coast Salish Nation.
After the Victoria Pride Parade, join thousands in MacDonald Park in James Bay for a multifaceted queer-themed festival.
The Opening Ceremony will be followed by speeches co-hosted by the GVNCS two spirit collective at 12:30PM. There will be two stages of music and entertainment, a beer garden (cash only – ATMs on site), multiple food trucks, a giant vendor area and a kids’ camp!
ABOUT VICTORIA’S PRIDE FESTIVAL
Victoria’s first pride festivals began over 25 years ago as large community picnics held in Beacon Hill Park where people gathered to eat, play games, and socialize. Since then, the festival has grown immensely, attracting upwards of 10,000 people to be proud and celebrate love, diversity and inclusivity.
ABOUT THE VICTORIA PRIDE SOCIETY
The Victoria Pride Society organizes events in accordance with its mission to inspire full inclusion within the Pride Community and society at large through visibility, collaboration, ongoing conversation and celebration. We envision a world free of discrimination, violence, and ignorance, in which all people, through education, equality, and safety are empowered to lead full, authentic lives.”
