Winnipeg Pride – The Pride of the Prairies – is one of the largest celebrations between Toronto and Vancouver of LGBTTQ* (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, two-spirited, queer/questioning, pansexual, asexual and intersex) people and their allies, supporters and friends. Our mission is to affirm the lives of everyone by generating and participating in events that celebrate the history, culture, spirit and pride of people within the Winnipeg community. We invite everyone from far and wide to join our welcoming city and celebrate Pride in Winnipeg – the heart of the continent. Surrounded by records of LGBTTQ* history at the Manitoba Gay & Lesbian Archives, Pride Winnipeg revealed the 2017 Parade & Festival Theme to be ‘Resurgence.’ Winnipeg, Manitoba; May 26 – Jun 4, 2017
The term Resurgence is defined as a rising again into life, activity, or prominence. Over the past decades, The Pride movement evolved from one of protest d demonstration, to one of celebration. However, the celebration has mainly been for Lesbian and Gay individuals, while our Bisexual, Trans-Identified, Two-Spirit, Non-Binary, Queer and Queer People of Colour communities have not yet felt the same progress and desire for celebration of equality. Furthermore, they have continued to be subjected to both unintentional and intentional discrimination from society and fellow members of the community.
The Pride Winnipeg Festival is a multi-day celebration with many events for all segments of our diverse community all leading up to our main PRIDE DAY celebrations on Sunday, June 4th, 2017.
Join the thousands of people that gather downtown and at The Forks to participate in the Pride Winnipeg celebrations, which include the Rally at the Legislative Building, Parade through Downtown and the Festival at The Forks.
Seasons of Pride is pleased to present the Gay Pride or LGBTQ Pride Calendar for 2017. You will find Gay Pride events, LGBT Film Festivals, and the Gay Travel Events like Gay Ski Weeks. We do our best to try and keep up with all the events, but sometimes we miss one or two.
