Vancouver Hotel Adds LGBT Pride To City Skyline, Permanently


Just in time for Vancouver's pride events in late July and Early August, the city's skyline now features a permanent display of LGBT pride. The Sandman Suites Hotel on Davie Street in Vancouver's gayborhood (Davie Village) has painted a 55-foot wide rainbow on to the very top of their roof.

Vancity Buzz has a quote from Valentina Tang, General Manager of the hotel. She says:

We are proud to call this community our home and want to illustrate our pride by painting the iconic rainbow crowned on-top of our hotel…The concept behind the painting was: A heart of gold is where the rainbow begins. We are an inclusive organization and always like supporting our local communities.

Next time you're flying over Vancouver, keep your eyes peeled!

    Greatest city in Canada hands down. No, not that toxic waste dump that is Toronto. besides, Kiwi’s there which makes it automatically a must-avoid.

    Rick, you just gave your new alias away.

    I wish the attendants would put you back in your room at Bellevue. Do they know you’re on the loose?

    LOL I’m not Rick, Kiwi is.

    I can’t believe you people haven’t figured out yet that Kiwi posts ALL those trolly posts himself.

    He purposely posts the Rick posts, then counteracts them under his own name to make himself look like a hero, and to get hits on his blog from people who ‘agree’ with him, and click his name to get there.

    I can’t believe you all haven’t figured this out. Why on earth do you think he so emphatically responds to every one of the Rick posts on every single article regardless of what “Rick” says?

    Did you think he’s just the world’s most efficient troll feeder or something??
