Support Sher Vancouver Pride Float

Bollywood Does Pride!

One of the most anticipated floats in the annual Vancouver Pride Parade is back with a bang! 

The Sher Vancouver Pride of Bollywood VI float will be banging bhangra, bollywood, and fusion beats with dancers wearing colourful international costumes.

The theme of the float this year is “Strength and Diversity” which is also Sher Vancouver’s motto.  This motto was selected because South Asia is such a diverse, cultured, and colourful region of the world that the members of Sher Vancouver are proud to showcase in the spirit of unity, solidarity, and inclusiveness. 

This year’s Pride of Bollywood VI  float will have a larger flat deck with more floor space for dancers. 

Sher Vancouver is looking for donations to pay for the float as well as official sponsors.  

Thank you to  Sher Vancouver members who generously donate their time, money, and support to ensure Sher Vancouver has fabulous representation in the annual Vancouver Pride Parade. 

 “The Vancouver Pride Parade is a time for the South Asian and larger community to come out and celebrate and send a message that LGBTQ people are not alone.  There are thousands of LGBTQ people and their allies in this city and on pride they all come together united as one,” says Sher Vancouver Founder Alex Sangha.

This is the first time since 2012 that Sher Vancouver will have a float in the Vancouver Pride Parade.  The float is dedicated to the memory of our late social coordinator, January Marie Lapuz, who passed away in September 2012.    Sher Vancouver is producing a documentary in honor of January and you can find out more details at this link
