Part of Richard Dopson fonds
Item part is part 1 (of 2) of a videocassette containing recordings of Gay Pride parades in Vancouver (B.C.). The first parade on the recording is the 1988 parade. The recording begins with people and parade floats gathered in a parking lot in Stanley Park, and the camera operator captures shots of some of the parade entries and speaks with participants before the parade commences. This is followed by footage of parade onlookers gathered at English Bay, and the parade captured from Beach Ave. near Denman St, including a parade group representing Celebration '90. The camera operator then walks down Beach Ave. along with the parade. The parade concludes at Sunset Beach west of the Burrard Street Bridge, where a Tina Turner impersonator is performing on a stage, followed by remarks from political personalities, an announcement about events planned for Celebration '90, and the presentation of awards to the winning entries in the parade.
