Windsor-Essex Pride Fest has always been more then just a festival. As an organization it has always been our mandate to empower our members and members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer, Questioning and Two Spirit (LGBTIQ2S) 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 peer-facilitated groups 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 LGBTIQ2S 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.
We are a powerful statement of our regions commitment to equality and diversity as well as to strengthen the sense of community and contribute to the vibrancy, health and overall well-being of LGBTIQ2S people in Windsor-Essex. Your help ensures that this continues to be a number one priority for our community and your organization.
