It was the Gay pride festival on june 1st. It started at the legislature building with a rally where they discussed how canada has advanced as a country accepting LGBT rights. The fellow in the blue shirt was the guest of honour a gay man from iraq, who fled due to death threats from his partners family. The rally was followed by a parade, my friend Willow was in. She was supporting a costume designing couple by wearing one of their outfits in the parade. She's the one with the flower headdress. The designers are the 2 wearing the pink and green box-like skirts. The festival continued at the forks with vendors, bands and food.
