The Saskatoon Virtual Pride Festival is happening June 12 to 19, 2021. We have planned events that connect and celebrate the 2SLGBTQ+ community, including black, Indigenous, and people of colour, families, and allies, while following public health guidelines.
Black Lives Matter. We support Black, Indigenous, and all People of Colour as they struggle to be heard, valued, and respected. Saskatoon Pride vows to use its platform to elevate BIPOC voices during the Festival and always. We are evaluating our events, activities and engagement to this end. We need to ask, listen, and act.
We will work with others to make our community safe, welcoming, and equitable for all. Pride began as a protest, became a riot, and continued to evolve into a celebration as more rights were won in the fight for inclusion and acceptance. Now and in the days ahead, we look for guidance and opportunity to connect, make change, and share our Pride.
