The City of Richmond, in partnership with Community Associations and Societies, celebrates Pride Week every year with a variety of inclusive events and activities at various City facilities. Pride Week is a celebration of our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Two-Spirit (LGBTQ2S) communities. It is about valuing and respecting diversity, and recognizing the importance of a safe and inclusive community for everyone.
The City of Richmond installed its first rainbow crosswalk on July 21, 2019 just in time for Pride Week, after City Council approved it on June 23, 2019. The colourful crosswalk is located on Minoru Boulevard and affirms the City’s commitment to be an inclusive, engaged and caring community.
Pride Week 2020 will be held from July 27 to August 2, 2020. Check back for a list of Pride Week 2020 events closer to the date.
