Pride Location

March in the Vancouver Pride Parade with UBC’s Faculty of Medicine and Resident Doctors of BC on Sunday @ noon, August 6th, 2017!

UBC Med and Resident Doctors of BC have marched in the parade for many years. Everyone is welcome to join. We would love to have a strong presence and show our support for LGBTQ2+ patients, students, and staff.

This year’s parade theme is “My Pride”. Each individual has their own unique experience of their Pride, and Pride week is an opportunity to reflect on both the celebratory and deeply emotional components of their lives. With changes happening close to home, it’s important to remember how fortunate we are to live in such a supportive place. We’ve seen a lot of progress in recent years, but there are still a number of issues facing many members of the LGTBQ2+ community. So let us stand and march together, in support of each other and our patients, whether they are straight or gay, cisgender or transgender, queer or questioning! This event is for everyone, so COME OUT and PLAY!
