Whistler Pride’s 8th Annual Pride Parade
Whistler annual Pride parade began in 2010 when the festival hosted the first ever Pride House at the Vancouver/Whistler Olympic Winter Games. Pride House was created to provide a safe and inclusive space for fans, athletes and family to come together and enjoy the games while raising awareness of homophobia and transphobia in Sports and in society in general. This year we were honoured to have the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre’s ambassadors lead the parade and provide an official welcome to the shared territories. We also had one set of “I Do’s” making this year’s parade extra special.

Whistler Pride is very grateful to the generous support of Tourism Whistler and the festival’s official airline partner – Delta Air Lines for helping to bring some wonderful Instagrammers and social media influencers to this year’s Gay Ski Week.
One of our favourite events this year was the Sip N Dip at the Scandinave Spa. It looks like the Nomadic Boys enjoyed it too!
SEBY: “Oh Stefan I’m getting ‘snow board’ and ‘piste-off’ at all these skiers. I’d really ‘Après-ciate’ an ice cold drink right now. I mean there’s ‘snow’ possible way these puns can get any worse, we’re totally on ‘thin ice’…” STEFAN: after almost a decade together he can still find a way to make me burst out laughing! Stripping down in the snow (and of course skiing) here in Whistler is super exhausting, so we were craving a spa. The divine @scandinavewhis is the #1 Tripadvisor rated spa in Whistler so we checked it out, and absolutely loved it. It’s all outdoors with a mix of cold/hot baths, and a strict silence policy in place. Definitely worth checking out #onlyinwhistler
Wednesday we welcomed back the incredibly talented and funny Margaret Cho for the Night of Comedy. Margaret was named one of the top 50 stand up comics of all time by Rolling Stone Magazine. This five time Emmy and Grammy nominated artist was sensational. Looks like a Couple of Men enjoyed her too!
Definitely our #gayselfie photo moment of #whistlerpride2018! During this years night of comedy we had a blast thanks to the hilarious @margaret_cho! Later today we will celebrate lgbtq Pride parade on the slopes of #whistlerblackcomb!

The Nomadic Boys Stef & Seb explored Whistler’s backcountry with The Eastsiders Kit & John with The Adventure Group out in the Callaghan Valley at Cougar Mountain.
Après Ski in Whistler is always one of our favourite things to do. Daniel, Kit and John all take a bit of a time out to enjoy the outdoor après experience at the Four Seasons Whistler

Friday was the 8th annual Whistler Pride Parade. The parade started in 2010 when the festival hosted the very first Olympic Pride House. A pavilion that dared to speak openly and honestly about homophobia and transphobia in sports. It was a place fans, athletes and families could come together to celebrate the Olympic spirit in a safe and inclusive space. Pride House has gone on to be a world wide movement with a Pride House in PyeongChang at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games hosted by Canada House.
Happy #whistlerpride2018! While our friends at home in Amsterdam just went to bed, we celebrated the 26th edition of Whistler Pride in West #Canada, British Columbia. Together with hundreds of LGBTQ+ we stood up for equality and love! Happy #gaypride everyone! ??❤️?? — ?A #coupleofmen’s #gaytravel #travelblog goes around the world #followme on our trip✨ ??❤️??

A room with a view…
John takes in some of the stunning views many of our Whistler Pride partner hotels have. The snow in the trees this year at the Delta Whistler Village Suites by Marriott was especially impressive.
