Stop At: Vancouver Downtown

Meet your guide – the man in pink! – outside the Robert Lee YMCA at 955 Burrard Street. You'll soon embark on a 2 hour long adventure into the LGBTQ2+ history and culture of this West Coast metropolis. You'll weave a path through Imperial Court coronations, drag kings at the Quadra, gay ministers at the United Church, Patient Zero, the GRID crisis, and visit urban oasis Nelson Park, until you find yourself in the gaybourhood on Davie Street. The walking tour strolls the historic tree-lined West End as you discover the city's earliest Pride parade, Jim Deva Plaza, bookstore bombings, a transgender campaigner who blew the whistle on the biggest crime in Vancouver history, Vancouver’s secret gay village, and the remarkable story of two-spirited warrior Gone to the Spirits. You’ll finish right in the middle of the action in the Davie Street village with its fantastic variety of bars and restaurants.
