Feature Story, Canada
As a result of the bravery and heroic efforts of our LGBTQ+ pioneers, today Canada hosts Pride events from coast to coast, in all major cities, and also in some places where you would least expect it not so long ago. Organizations such as Fierté Canada Pride now include delegates at their annual AGM from over 75 Pride organizations from across Canada.
For travel reference and convenience sake, following is a list of locations and websites for Pride events in 2023, which are always a great addition to any travel plans. We’ll start on the east coast and work our way west. Although space will not allow us to include all known events in this article, we will include them on Gayvan.com’s online Pride pages, which are an ongoing work in progress.
