Vancouver Pride This Weekend

There are SO many events this weekend here in Vancouver for Pride, it can be mind-boggling to keep straight---err organized. I'll just highlight my favorites:

First, Thursday night, Solarice (which is gay-owned and operated--by a friend of mine) is hosting at Pride Pampering Party from 4-8pm, where there will be Rainbow Polish Pedicures, Full spa services, Rainbow Condom Company, Passion Parties, Flesh Lingerie Boutique, a Tarot card reader, snacks, and our pakin pride punch and more. Special note: THEY HAVE AIR CONDITIONING! (For those of you not in the NW, we are having a record-breaking heat wave--hello global warming.) And you need to book spa services in advance. 2200 west 4th, Vancouver BC, 604-733-5007 (Kitsilano)

Friday night, there are some great things going on. First, there are two boob cruises--Chicks Ahoy and Hot + Wet. No matter which boat you choose, you'll sure to be happy. You can buy tickets at Little Sisters Bookstore on Davie. Also, there is a big gay street party on Davie Street downtown. The city is blocking off from Burrard to Bute. Come get your pride motor started and cool off with some cheap festival beer.

Saturday -recouperate and save your energy. Have a BBQ, go the movies, just relax and stay cool.

Sunday, all hell breaks loose downtown again when the Pride parade winds its way through city streets. The big thing for women on Sunday is the Chicka Party, held at the Sheraton Wall Center. (3-9pm) In the official Pride guide this year, yours truly is in the picture promoting it. Remember last year when we took the crowds by storm with our riding crops? Good times. For the Chicka party this year, you can get tickets in advance (a really good idea) at Little Sisters, or Kokopelli's on Commercial. This event is put on by our friends at Fly Girl Productions.

Happy Pride everyone!!
