Vancouver Pride Society President, Ken Coolen admitted that the event did get off to a rough start. The event was supposed to start at 7pm, but volunteers were not trained to sell tickets to the events and set-up for the event ticket sales and vendors inside the events weren’t fully set-up until around 8pm.
The event was well attended with thousands of people enjoying the live music, DJ’s and performers on the the multiple stages. Notable group, Sugarbeach performed their 2011 North America Outgames theme song, “Come on Out”.
