For immediate release – Tuesday, May 10, 2022


Borderland Pride is thrilled to announce the line-up for its 2022 Pride festival.


This year’s festival – themed “Loud and Proud” – will feature over 16 events and initiatives promoting LGBTQ2 diversity, equity, and inclusion in our community. The line-up brings together over 20 event partners, affiliates, and sponsoring organizations – not including the many special events taking place in schools and workplaces across the region to recognize Pride Month, which is observed nationally in June.

Local events this year will provide opportunities for celebration, advocacy, and education. All of the events are free to attend and open to all ages. The calendar includes the following highlights:

Further event details and new events will be posted online at www.borderlandpride.org/2022. The 2022 “Pride Guide” will be distributed in the May 18 Fort Frances Times and can be downloaded here.


Borderland Pride wishes to extend special thanks to its numerous event partners, sponsors, and community volunteers, as well as the significant support it has received from the Government of Canada. Sponsoring businesses and organizations will be featured prominently on Borderland Pride’s social media over the month ahead.


Those organizations still interested in holding an event or initiative as part of the Pride festival can contact borderlandpride@gmail.com to be added to the online event schedule.

Quote:


“Pride is back, and we are proud to kick-off a long overdue summer of fun for families across the Borderland region. This year we are celebrating loudly and proudly to embolden LGBTQ2 people and their allies to do more to advocate for equality and against the gender-based discrimination and hatred we continue to see in our world, particularly with the surge in American laws targeting trans people and reproductive health. We invite everyone to join us for our events. We provide a safe space for all those who care about building a more inclusive community.”

– Douglas W. Judson, Festival Co-Chair, Borderland Pride
