Nova Scotia: Halifax Rallies to Support Gay Pride Celebration

Published Date Author: , July 30th, 2012

“It is not ‘us’ and ‘them’ anymore,” said Krista Snow, the volunteer chair of Halifax Pride and former Halifax City Council member. “We have gone from a completely ‘gay event’ to a celebration for the entire Halifax community.”

An estimated 100,000 people attended yesterday’s Pride parade. With record participation by community organizations as well as national sponsors such as TD Bank, it took nearly three hours for the dozens of floats and contingents to weave their way through the streets of the historic maritime city.

The parade was just one of the activities that were part of this year’s 25th anniversary celebration, which kicked off last Friday, July 20.
