Pride weekend wraps up at Blue Mountain


Pride weekend was back at Blue Mountain on Sunday.

"What we are finding is that there are lots of people in our community and lots of guests that are looking for this kind of inclusive and inviting event," said Tara Lovell, manager of Public Relations at Blue Mountain Resort.

Pride Blue Mountain, Ontario's Largest Winter Pride festival, took place from Friday to Sunday, with dozens of events scheduled at the resort.

The three-day festivities offered a variety of events, including a ski pride parade, captivating opening ceremonies, a drag brunch, and a disco skating party.

"We are seeing skiers and non-skiers, couples, friends and families, parents with their kids, and it is a great conversation to have with your kids about what it means to be in a kind and inclusive space," said Lovell.

There were also comedy shows, après-ski parties, and a performance from Rosé of RuPaul's Drag Race, who performed alongside Aurora Matrix and Jada Shada Hudson of Canada's Drag Race. Top Stories
