MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LGBTIQ2S COMMUNITY IN WINDSOR-ESSEX!
Thank you for considering supporting the Windsor-Essex Pride Fest!
Your interest in making a contribution with our organization is not only socially progressive, it shows you and your business support the Two Spirit, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, Intersex and Asexual (2SLGTBQIA+) community in Windsor-Essex. Our organization provides many year round social programs, activities and events in Windsor-Essex that raise awareness of ongoing challenges that still exist including discrimination, exclusion, harassment, assault and many more.
Celebrating our 30th anniversary this year, Windsor-Essex Pride Fest is still a dynamic non-profit organization that delivers numerous and unique social programs, activities and events which contribute to the vibrancy, health and well-being of 2SLGTBQIA+ residents in Windsor-Essex and as a result, strengthening the community overall.
As you no doubt know all-too-well, over the last two years, COVID-19 has affected us all both physically, mentally and financially but we are proud to announce we will be able to have our physical festival at Lanspeary Park and other location, running from August 2-7, 2022. Favourites such as our official Flag Raising at City Hall, educational workshops, live entertainment, local retail vendors, local food vendors, family friendly activities and of course, the annual Parade will be back in person for all to enjoy this year!
Windsor-Essex Pride Fest has always been more than just a festival. As an organization it has always been our mandate to empower our members and members of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community to connect with one another and be a part of the larger community. We have always done our best to facilitate opportunities for connection and belonging through activities and initiatives as well as social programs and special events. All of these activities, programs and events address social isolation and help to create a community that is more accommodating, resilient and engaged to the broader 2SLGBTQIA+ community in Windsor-Essex. A lack of peer or social support, activities, gatherings or other resources in the community can lead to social isolation that often escalates into a number of problems including homelessness, depression, violence, and often, suicidal ideation.
Our partnership package provides you with several opportunities to show your support for equality and diversity in our community. These opportunities include sponsorship, vendor space, advertising space and donation. 2SLGBTQIA+ consumers are well-documented for their loyalty and support of businesses they perceive as being supportive of them. There are a number of options to choose from so be bold, be proactive, and support us today.
We thank you for considering one our partnership opportunities and we hope you can support the Windsor-Essex Pride Fest, its programs and the 2SLGBTQIA+ community in Windsor-Essex.
