We believe 

the word inclusive, splattered across PR copy,

has no room in a city that is not yet so. 
Like, we love her...but she's not there yet. 

We believe real action can be taken to create true
community and belonging rather than redundant descriptions of intentions that perpetuate the assumed existence of an ideal that is clearly yet to be achieved. As community members we saw the opportunity to create real impact through bolstering an already blossoming annual summer Pride festival.


We believe that Pride is not the property of any one group, but rather an opportunity for us all to collaborate and co-create a meaningful and impactful experience. Through our efforts, we aim to promote acceptance, understanding, and support for the 2SLGBTQIA+ community, while also raising awareness about the challenges and injustices that individuals in our community face. We aren’t here to exist, we are here to flourish.

We believe the right to exist free from discrimination is not reserved for any one minority group and as such will be working to amplify the universal truth 


Whether you identify as 2SLGBTQIA+ or are an ally who wants to show your support, we invite you to join us in our mission to celebrate and uplift the diverse voices and experiences of our community. Together, we can make a difference and create a brighter, more equitable future for all.

As a coalition, we are committed to creating a safe and welcoming environment where everyone can feel valued, respected, and empowered. We believe that by working together, we can make a positive difference in the lives of BIPOC & 2SLGBTQIA+ individuals and help build a more self aware,

responsible, impactful and compassionate society for all.
