2017 is a special milestone year, as Whistler Pride & Ski Festival celebrates its 25th Anniversary! Amazing to think its been a quarter of a century of celebrating Pride on the hills...we can't wait to join in on the festivities!
Gayvan's Angus Praught has co-hosted the two annual Whistler Pride TV specials for OutLookTV, in 2014, 2015, 2016, and will be doing so again in 2017 (see past shows in videos below). If you are up in Whistler this year, you may also have a chance to be in the show, or you can catch the 2017 shows on Shaw TV Channel 4 in Vancouver and nationally on the OUTtv network in February. After airing on TV, they will also be available internationally on Gay Direct and YouTube in March, 2017.
And with that said, it's now time to finalize plans for 2017. See you in Whistler!
