WinterPRIDE pt 2

Yes, it's Whistler WinterPRIDE follow-up week here on Up Your Alley and today I have some videos for you, loyal reader…

Part of this year's off-mountain activities included adventure tours for gays and lesbians. When push came to shove and I had to choose between zip trekking and dog sledding, I chose dog sledding. It's one of those things that most Canadian boys and girls dream about. I'm happy this one of the few times I had my camera with me and remembered to take video. Videographer I am not and the production quality is low, but you'll get a taste of what it's like:

The guy riding in front of me is my new-friend-for-a-sleigh-ride, Jeff Perez, who kindly let me tag along when they over booked what was supposed to be my morning trip:
For anyone who thinks it's hard to meet queer people, large Pride festivals like WinterPRIDE make it remarkably easy to make new friends from around the world.
I also got to drive the sled. But couldn't take a video at the same time, so here's a photo, I'm on the back in the grey toque: 

I'd like to give a big thank you to the team at Outdoor Adventures Whistler. They really helped make WinterPRIDE feel like a once in a lifetime kinda experience.

As you've heard me talk about this, pretty much non-stop for two weeks, this should be the last time I'll post about the Mr. Gay World competition. I lifted this video from YouTube, here's the background:

Mr. Gay World 2009 competition happened in Whistler, Canada, February 4-8, 2009. This video was presented at the MR GAY WORLD GRAND FINALE & AWARDS show on Saturday night February 7th, before the announcement that Mr. Gay Ireland, Max Krzyzanowski was the new title winner of Mr. Gay World.
