The parade is an LGBTA tradition going strong since it was founded in 1979 when a group of 200 people commemorated New York City's 1969 Stonewall Riots with "Gairilla," the precursor to Montreal's Pride celebrations.The Pride Parade is a show of the community's solidarity, strength, and demand for the same respect, dignity, and basic rights as those granted to heterosexuals.
The highlight of Montreal Gay Pride is arguably the colorful and lively parade, which will mark its 35th edition for 2019. The Montreal Gay Pride Parade will again celebrate the rainbow flag, paying particular attention to the color blue - a symbol of serenity and harmony.
On Sunday, the Montreal Gay Pride Parade starts at 1 pm along blvd. Rene-Levesque, kicking off at rue Saint-Mathieu and proceeding to the Gay Village, where it finally wraps up at rue Sanguinet. This is followed by the free Mega T-Dance party at Place Emilie-Gamelin (taking place at 1 pm and featuring a host of top DJs).Grand Marshals this year include Mumbai filmmaker Sridhar Rangayan.
Der Höhepunkt der Montreal Gay Pride ist wohl die farbenfrohe und lebhafte Parade, die 2019 zum 35. Mal stattfindet. Die Montreal Gay Pride Parade wird wieder die Regenbogenflagge feiern, und dabei besonders auf die Farbe Blau achten - ein Symbol für Ruhe und Harmonie.
