They were playful, proud and strong.

Thousands lined the streets, taking part in the Pride Parade on Sunday, June 2. Held on the last day of the 10-day Pride Winnipeg festival, the march started 11 a.m. at the Manitoba Legislative grounds, and made its way down Portage Avenue, ending at Waterfront Drive near The Forks.

Winnipeg Mayor Brian Bowman was in attendance and participated in the parade.

This year’s festival theme, Pride of Colour, emphasized the inclusion of marginalized and generally silenced voices within the LGBTQ community.

Staff photographer John Woods was present to capture some of the moments from the parade.
