Vancouver Pride

Locus will be performing at the Sunset Beach Pride Festival for the annual Vancouver Pride celebration on August 1st, 2010. The quartet will be part of an entertainment roster that includes, among many others, Kim Kuzma, Matthew Presidente, Peter Breeze, and headliners Yehonathan and Lyrik.

The Vancouver Pride Society (VPS) brings the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community, their friends, allies and supporters in celebration of the unique spirit and culture of the LGBT community by producing quality, inclusive events such as the popular annual Pride Parade and Festival.

This will be the third appearance for Locus at Vancouver Pride - the group was previously featured on the Vancouver Pride stages in 2008 (Brockton Oval for Picnic in the Park) and 2009 (PNE Playland for Gay Day at Playland).
