The Breakwater Quartet

The Breakwater Quartet has established a significant presence in the Victoria music scene since its inception in 2019, delivering performances across various venues encompassing both classical and contemporary musical genres. Distinguishing themselves through an extensive repertoire comprised predominantly of bespoke arrangements, the quartet's commitment to musical excellence is underscored by their collective background in classical music under the tutelage of the Lafayette String Quartet at the University of Victoria. Beyond their classical roots, each member exhibits a profound appreciation for diverse musical genres, rendering the Breakwater Quartet a remarkably versatile ensemble. Their musical range spans from iconic works by The Beatles and David Bowie to contemporary hits by Beyoncé and Coolio.

The Chair in Transgender Studies is proud to march in the 2023 Victoria Pride Parade! We invite all Trans+ people and allies to march with us in the parade. 

Join us by 10:00 AM at our marshaling area, Fisgard between Douglas & Blanshard (Group A). We are in position #13 (look for our white truck float covered with Trans+ flags). The parade officially starts at 11:00 AM.

VICTORIA PRIDE FESTIVAL

Following the parade, come visit our table at the Pride Festival in MacDonald Park. Come put your hands on history! Original historical material from the world's largest Transgender Archives will be available for you to pick up and look at.

A BUTTON-SIZED PIECE OF HISTORY

Spencer Robinson, community member and TransChair supporter, designed a unique (and super cute) button to celebrate Victoria Pride 2023 and you can have one as your very own piece of history! Come by our table and pick up your button-sized piece of history, while supplies last!
