Pride Week Underway In the Port City

Saint John's gay and lesbian community are celebrating the 11th annual Pride week.

A flag-raising held at City hall at noon today and the proclamation will be read again at tonight's common council meeting.

Brian Boyd tells CHSJ News events began on Sunday and carry on all week long wrapping up with the parade on Saturday.

He says it's full week and they are breaking in a new event tonight called Chase the Rainbow, an Amazing chase-like event, in Kings Square.

You can show up for the Chase the Rainbow tonight at King Square, all you have to do is bring a non-perishable food donation for the food bank.

Other events include an auction at Mahogany Manor on Wednesday and month-long art exhibit.

A complete list of the events can be found on the Saint John Pride Week Facebook page.
