STRUT Vancouver 2016


On a cloudy and rainy yet not raining day, the Vancouver Sisters were on hand to help out with STRUT Vancouver, a walk to support LGBT+ refugees (http://strutvancouver.ca/).  This year, STRUT raised over $35,000, including a $1000 donation from the Sisters.  They monies were distributed as grants to Inland Refugee Society of BC (http://inlandrefugeesociety.ca/) and M.O.S.I.A.C (http://www.mosaicbc.com/).  This year was the 2nd Annual Walk-a-thon organised by Foundation of Hope (https://www.facebook.com/Rainbowfoundationofhope/where walking 1 mile along the Vancouver Seawall, from Sunset Beach to the Inukshuk and back, is easier than walking a life time in the shoes of oppressed LGBT+ peoples living in fear in countries where it is still legal to kill someone because they are different than the status quo.

The Sisters were on hand to help bring light and lightheartedness to the event by handing out prizes for Best Heels, Best Team and Best Corporate Team.  Through the clouds, we embodied the power of joy and cheered for STRUT-ers and posed for many photos.

If you weren’t there this year, we hope to see you next year in your most highest and most fabulous heels.
