The Whistler Pride Parade began in 2010 during the Olympic Winter Games. A group of LGBT sports activists lead by Dean Nelson, Ken Coolen and Mark Tewksbury marched from the Pride House located at the Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre to the Whistler Olympic Media House, located at the Maurice Young Millennium Place. Dean Nelson along with his LGBT sports activists (Jennifer Birch-Jones, Caryl Dolinko, and Mark Tewksbury) held a press conference condemning the homophobic remarks made against Olympic figure skater, Johnny Weir.

Join us in celebrating the 6th Annual Pride Ski Parade at Whistler Pride! The birthplace of the Olympic Pride House movement.
