About Pride Season

Pride Season is a term that refers to the wide range of Pride events that take place over the summer (June to September) when LGBTQIA2S+ communities and allies come together to spotlight the resilience, celebrate the talent, and recognize the contributions of LGBTQIA2S+ communities. Although special attention is put on the Pride events during the summer months, they happen throughout the year in many communities.

Historically, Pride gatherings emerged from the first large-scale protests for LGBTQIA2S+ rights. In Canada, the first demonstrations took place in Ottawa and Vancouver in 1971. By 1973, Pride events were held in several Canadian cities, including Montréal, Ottawa, Saskatoon, Toronto, Vancouver and Winnipeg. Toronto's Pride weekend in June is now among the largest Pride events in North America.
