Because of the people that risked their lives, we can live without fear of prosecution because of gender identity and gender expression. Join everyone June 20th and June 22nd to celebrate the main Kelowna Pride marches. Plus organizers are bringing the Pride Festival back to City Park (near the bridge), creating a longer March route and larger festival site.
