360 Edition of the Montreal Pride Festival

“Let’s remember that it was only 30 years ago that the violent police raid at the Sex Garage party led to a liberation and emancipation movement in the city! We must remember this event to celebrate the advancement of our cause, and to continue it. This year, with physical distancing measures, it is even more important for people of the sexual and gender diversity to be able to come together virtually, as the situations of vulnerability they face have been compounded by isolation. We hope that this edition can bring comfort and happiness! “said Marie-Ève Baron, Vice-President. 

A 360 program that represents our communities! 
The sexual and gender diversity communities are numerous, diverse and driven by different realities and issues. It is in this context that a daily theme will be presented in the form of vox pop, information capsules, conferences and of course, festive activities! The full programming is available on the official Montreal Pride Festival website and via its Facebook page!
