By Kendell  Yan

Peak Pride offers something for everyone under the rainbow banners at Big White in Kelowna from April 6-8, including a mountain parade, Aprés Ski beer gardens, and performances from performances of all kinds at the big pride bash, WipeOUT. Extend the weekend in either direction here in Vancouver before or after making your way up for one big gay ski weekend.

Here are some events to check out in Vancouver on the peripherals of Peak Pride:

Moist Mondays with Misty Meadows at XY
