This week marks the start of Pride Week in Calgary, cumulating in the Pride Parade and party in the park next Saturday 3rd September.

This Pride is very late compared to many others in the country, not sure why, but looks like there are lots of entertainment events going on throughout the week and already there are things being done in readiness.

Rainbows are appearing everywhere, including these two across 17th Ave SW at the junction of 4th St SW. Apparently the rainbow one s for the LGBT community and the pink, blue and white is for transgender.
