Loud and proud

Winnipeggers will get the chance to let their true colours show at this year's 25th annual Pride Winnipeg festival.

From May 25 to June 3, everyone is invited to participate in Pride Week, from the rainbow flag-raising ceremony to the rockin' dance party. The annual Pride Parade attracts thousands of people every year, marching through the streets of downtown to celebrate Winnipeg's colourful diversity. The Pride festival at The Fork included the talents of Anjulie, The Cliks, Jeffery Straker, Jerry Sereda, Womyn of Pride and DJ Hollywood Hype.

Come join the fun on June 3 for Pride's official dance party.

Pride Winnipeg began on August 2, 1987, when about 250 people bravely marched on behalf of the LGBTTQ community. Many of the marchers wore paper bags over their heads in fear of being recognized, and the struggle for societal acceptance continues on until present day. The LGBTTQ has moved leaps and bounds since, and Pride Winnipeg is a true testament to the love our city has for this community.
