The Official Music Video for “Come On Out” from SUGARBEACH entices the world to be a part of the Vancouver 2011 Outgames

Some of the reviews so far:

“Now there’s an anthem for anyone’s life. Fabulous!”

“The sites are spectacular and the energy abounds…awesome!”

“Fantastic song! What a great start to the games!”

“I smiled all the way through it!”


“Vancouver was the perfect backdrop for this video and we felt that showcasing its beauty would only add to the buzz being created in this city in anticipation of hosting the Outgames, the Human Rights Conference and Pride all in the same week! We ran around for days from Deep Cove to Whistler, balancing on boulders (in heels I might add) and even braving the Peak 2 Peak Gondola ride from Whistler to Blackcomb. It was truly as much fun as it looks!

Of course, we also needed to add a love story because you never know what can happen when you ‘Come on Out and Play.” says Marlee Walchuk one half of Sugarbeach.


Barb Snelgrove, Media Director of the Vancouver 2011 Outgames states, “We are ecstatic about the tune that Sugarbeach has created for the Games, it truly represents the spirit of the Outgames and we are honored that they are part of this very special event”.
