Whistler is Getting a Splash of Colour
To help mark the silver anniversary of diversity in the Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) a proposal from the Whistler Pride and Ski Festival organizers to the Mayor and council of painting a permanent Rainbow Crosswalk in Whistler has been unanimously approved.
“We are so excited, Whistler is getting a splash of colour ahead of our 25th Anniversary”, explains Dean Nelson Executive Producer and CEO of Whistler Pride. “We have always had a positive working relationship with the community of Whistler and their stakeholders. To have the RMOW council unanimously approve our proposal is really quite reaffirming in the resort’s commitment to safety and inclusion in our community. We are really looking forward to 2017 and seeing our idea come to life just like our Pride House project in 2010 and hope this symbol will continue to inspire future generations to be proud of who they are and to claim their authentic selves.”
Sunil Sinha, Executive Producer and Director of Entertainment is pleased with the star studded line up the festival has brought together so far. Building on the success of bringing in headline artists for the past two years including Margaret Cho, Bianca Del Rio, Miss Sherry Vine, Varla Jean Merman, and Jackie Beat has really helped to build the festival’s mid week programming with glowing success.
“We knew we needed to up our game for our big 25th! Earlier this summer we have been able to announce we will be bringing in the infamous Airhostess PAM ANN, the alter ego of Caroline Reid. It is going to be an amazing show and already is creating a lot of buzz around the planet as she makes a very special “Snow Landing” in Whistler on Wed., January 25th at the Whistler Conference Centre. We are also very pleased to have been able to secure the World’s Top 10 House Producers, THE CUBE GUYS of Sleeping Giant Music, to headline the festival’s main event, SNOWBALL25. This Italian duo will have the dance floor packed!”
Though you can expect a lot of Silver in 2017… you can now expect a Splash of Colour to help mark the big milestone in Whistler! Tickets now on sale <click here> for more information.
