Of course, Whistler’s Whistler Pride and Ski Festival will also feature a week full of parties at Whistler gay friendly bars including Buffalo Bill’s and the Whistler Conference Centre.

Whistler Pride Night of Comedy with Margaret Cho and special guest Selene Luna

[image source_type=”attachment_id” source_value=”6760″ title=”Whistler Pride and Ski Festival 2015 – Margaret Cho and Selene Luna” align=”left” size=”small”]This year’s top three events include a night of laughs with the power tandem of Margaret Cho and Selene Luna. Twice Grammy nominated Margaret Cho has gained world-wide praise for her ongoing work with promoting awareness for the LGBT community, through comedy. Triple-threat (actress, comic, dancer) Selene Luna is creating buzz in the Hollywood underground scene not only for her talents, but also in bringing into light various types of discrimination against anyone born a little different.
