Pride arose from mass demonstrations calling for an end to discrimination and a promotion of equality for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBT) communities. Although many Pride events across Canada have become celebrations, the message remains that of equal rights.
By using public space to promote inclusion, Pride offers the opportunity for LGBT communities to increase visibility, build community and celebrate sexual diversity and gender expression.
Pride events are open to everyone and members are encouraged to participate in events within their communities.
