T. G. (Vancouver Pride Parade)

A big thank you goes to Vocal Eye and the Vancouver Pride Society for making this experience possible. I never attended the pride parade in the past because it was so crowded and there were so many visual elements that I could not fully understand or appreciate even if a friend or family member was to describe things for me.

The venue was very comfortable for me and my guide dog, and the Vocal Eye buddies and Pride Society volunteers were incredibly welcoming and helpful. Also, the detailed live audio description provided by Rick and Terry resulted in a very fun and enjoyable afternoon, and I truly felt as though I could celebrate pride along with all of the other attendees.

I will definitely come out next year if this service is offered again, and I will encourage others with vision loss to take part as well.
