In June 1969, Canada decriminalized homosexuality. That same month, on June 28th, riots & protests erupted in New York City, starting at the Stonewall Inn & Bar with predominantly trans, black and Latino LGBT+ individuals who were outraged at their treatment by the police. Fifty-one years later, we celebrate LGBTQ2S+ diversity in June because of this.
Come celebrate Pride Month with your neighbours.
We will gather outside the Crescent Heights Community Association Hall and then take a walk to Rotary Park where we will have a casual picnic. Please bring your own food.
Bring your Pride Flags and wear your rainbows.
All LGBTQ2S+ residents & allies are welcome to attend.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, all participants MUST be 2m away from each other at all times (while walking or in the park). You are encouraged to bring PPE.
We recognize that if we are going to celebrate diversity we need to begin with where we are now – on Treaty 7 land. This event takes place on the traditional territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy, home of the Siksika, Piikani, and Kainai First Nations, along with the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda, including the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations. The City of Calgary is also home to Metis Nation of Alberta, Region III.
