Nanaimo Pride Guide
This year's theme is 'Pride is Protest'
The last few years have seen a drastic rise in anti-2SLGBTQIA+ sentiment, as those in power work to distract the masses from what's really making life so difficult. They aim to divide us, to focus our frustration, our desperation, on anyone but them.
Like the roots of the Pride movement, and so many civil rights movements before and after, this year's Parade and Festival theme is 'Pride is Protest'. It is time to bring our energy, our humanity, and our visibility back to the spotlight. It is time to again demand our right to participate, as our truest, most unapologetic selves, in the very society we contribute to every day.
Join us for 2023 Pride week and show the world that you will not be silent, that you will not stand by. That you will not allow your queer children, siblings, parents, and friends to be harmed by a regressive, fearful minority of people. Even more important, show your queer friends and family that you're willing to fight for them.
Pride is a safe space for all, please read our Safe Space Policy.
