Last week was Gay Pride Week in Victoria and the boisterous Pride Parade was held on Sunday. Just about every organization and business was represented in the parade and there were thousands of spectators to enjoy this annual spectacle. The lovely ladies pictured here are from the Cheesecake Burlesque Revue.
Situated on the far west coast of Canada, on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, Victoria is the capital city of the Province of British Columbia. Its benign climate (the warmest winters in Canada) and placid lifestyle make it a favorite retirement location as well as a popular tourist destination. About 400,000 people live in Victoria and adjacent communities. Click the photos to see them larger!
