So this is kinda awkward but we’re just gonna go ahead and address the ‘rainbow coloured elephant in the room’. You have a rainbow… we have a rainbow… and usually that’s just hunky-dory. But during Pride, only one rainbow deserves to be the centre of attention, and that’s yours (it is your party after all).
Over in Vancouver, our Pride celebrations have just begun (we’re not late, we just do things differently out west). So if you’re in the Vancouver area, make sure to visit our interactive Skittles Pride installation at Jim Diva Plaza as we light up the city with Pride. And rainbows. Lots of rainbows.
Here’s when to catch us:
We also celebrated marriage equality another sweet way: By officiating four LGBTQ2+ weddings in the Skittles-studded Hall of Rainbows.
Sometimes when Tenniel is thinking about a song, Kadeem randomly starts singing it. It’s like he’s a mind reader. So, he probably knew that 11 years after their first kiss at a street corner in Toronto’s Gay Village, we were going to be performing weddings on that same spot. Well played, Kadeem. Well played.
Adam is way not a morning person, and Steve is so clumsy he has managed to fall up, down and through stairs. They also don’t hide anything from anyone. Which is helpful, because now everyone knew not to send them a spiral staircase as a wedding gift at 7am.
Kayla and Jesseny share a lot with each other. A daughter. A love of nature. And a total phobia of touching cotton balls, towels or belly buttons. So, we figured we should throw them a wedding themed on all those things. jk. But that would’ve been pretty weird, right?
7 years ago, Graham dressed as a sea anemone and caught Rob’s attention. While that’s a pretty awesome opening line for any story, it wasn’t until 4 years later that their fairy-tale truly began. They made their happily ever after official – proving that love, and a great costume, will always win in the end.
And beyond throwing weddings and lighting up cities, we’re also sending more than 150 LGBTQ2+ youth to summer camp.
Camps supported include:
