Happy Pride! We are excited to announce a return to in-person Pride celebrations this year. We hope you can join us!

From its inception following the Stonewall Riots in 1969, Pride has always been more than a celebration: Pride commemorates pain and loss within 2SLGBTQ+ communities, and it serves as a demonstration to highlight the continued importance of resisting homophobia and transphobia, particularly in its intersections with other identities and experiences. And as we actively work against anti-2SLGBTQ+ violence and all forms of racism, it is vital that we also make space to celebrate queer and trans Black, Indigenous and Two-Spirit, and queer and trans people of colour communities. 2SLGBTQ+ liberation must be intersectional, centring those who are most marginalized within and outside of our communities.

We hope that you will join us for Pride events that celebrate our diverse 2SLGBTQ+ communities. Let us come together to break isolation, sustain our communities, and celebrate each other and ourselves, with Pride.
