History of Pride

For many, Pride is seen as a wonderful celebratory event, often showcasing parades, music, rainbows and performers of all kinds.

However, at its roots, Pride was borne out of riots and protests, as members of the 2SLGBTQ+ community fought for equal rights and freedoms. Although Pride can be seen as a celebration for all that the 2SLGBTQ+ community has overcome, it is important to recognize that, at its core, it is also a time and space for community members to assert their right to the same freedoms as those who are cisgender, gender-conforming and heterosexual. There is no Pride without the protests.
