This year, Pride Week in Victoria runs from July 1-8 all across the city. RRU will be marking Pride Week with two exciting events, including participation in the Pride Parade on Sunday, July 8.
Wednesday, July 4 - Pride on Campus
On Wednesday, July 4 join RRU Proud over lunch (noon-1 p.m.) outside the Grant building for a variety of Pride themed activities. There will be trivia, music, info booths, and a chance to help create our parade banner. So drop on by for the chance to win some fun prizes and support Pride Week.
Sunday, July 8 – Pride Parade
This year, RRU will again be walking in the annual Victoria Pride Parade. The Pride Parade starts at noon July 8 and makes its way down Government Street (starting at Pandora Avenue) and ends at MacDonald Park in James Bay, where the Pride Festival will be in full swing. Parade participants will gather at about 11 a.m. to register and get organized and will arrive at MacDonald Park at around 1 p.m.
If you would like to show your RRU spirit, hand out some candy, and join us in the Pride Parade, please RSVP to RRUProud@royalroads.ca – or you can sign up on July 4.
RRU Proud T-Shirts
Whether you’re walking in the parade or simply want to wear your pride, RRU Proud will be selling T-shirts again this year. $15 will get you a snazzy navy t-shirt emblazoned with the RRU Proud peacock on the front and the new Royal Roads logo on the back. T-shirts will be available in unisex sizes S, M, L, XL, and XXL and will be on sale on July 4.
However, T-Shirts (and sizes) are limited, so if you would like to pre-order your shirt, please email RRUProud@royalroads.ca with your preferred shirt size. Payment for pre-ordered shirts will be due by Wednesday, July 3 to Student Services (Grant 130); any pre-ordered shirts not paid for by July 3 will be released and available for sale on July 4.
