Winnipeg Pride Bigger Than Ever

Author: , June 6th, 2010

This year’s Pride Parade was the biggest yet, with more floats than ever before. “We’re thrilled to see that the community is overwhelmingly onboard for this year’s Pride celebrations,” said Barb Burkowski, Chair of the Pride Winnipeg committee.

“We’re seeing a growing number of members of the LGBTTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered, Two-Spirited, Queer) community, our friends, family members, and supporters who want to be a part of Pride Day festivities, and this year’s parade will be one that members of the community at large won’t want to miss,” added Burkowski.

Former Winnipeg mayor Glen Murray, a founding member of the Winnipeg Pride planning committee, spoke at a rally at the legislature. He told the crowd of thousands that he remembered when they parade started as a group of about 50 people, with about 12 of them wearing paper bags over their heads.
