Celebrating Victoria Pride 2012
Peace, love and a rainbow of colours are getting set to take over Victoria next week as the capital city celebrates Pride Week. The city was recently voted as a favourite Canadian destination by gay and lesbian travelers, and will welcome the loud and proud with a week-long, family-friendly celebration.
