There’s an extra color being added to the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games in Whistler in 2010. As well as the famous official blue, black, red, yellow, and green rings, next year’s games will also have pink hues.

GayWhistler are the producers of the annual, thrilling WinterPRIDE festival, which dusts Canada’s hottest mountains with boisterous hordes of LGBT snow sports and social life enthusiasts every February. In an impressive first, during 2010’s Olympics, they will host the first ever Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games PRIDE house at Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre.

Planned to be a haven where Olympic and Paralympic athletes, coaches, family, fans, and allies can be their authentic selves regardless of sexual identity or preference, PRIDE House will be a hip lounge where guests can chill and watch the games, trade pins, or just hang out with other open minded individuals.L1060436

“Together, we will create a safe space for our gay and lesbian community and their allies to go to during the Olympics," said Dean Nelson, CEO of GayWhistler.

PRIDE House will be open February 8th through March 24th, over the duration of the Olympics (Feb. 12-28), WinterPRIDE (Mar. 1-8), and the Paralympics (Mar. 12-21).
