VANCOUVER—Pride House, a safe haven, opened for Olympic gays and lesbians to socialize with their friends. Next to a vegetable stand, the place has a community room, library, discussion rooms and a clinic.
“This is very modest compared with the one in Whistler,” said one visitor from the neighborhood, Rick Collis, a retired journalist. “But I’m glad it’s here, just for me to have a coffee and meet other people. They do a good job with a very modest budget.”
Jennifer Breakspear, the executive director of Qmunity, which hosts Pride House, has the support of the Olympic Games. Pride House is on the list of places to visit in Vancouver.
