MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE 2SLGBTQIA+ COMMUNITY IN WINDSOR-ESSEX!
Thank you for taking the time to look over our 2023 Partnership Package.
Your interest in making a contribution with our organization is not only socially progressive, it shows you and your organization support the Two-Spirit, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, Intersex and Asexual (2SLGBTQIA+) community in Windsor-Essex.
Our organization provides many 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.
Now in our 31st year, we are proud and excited to announce that 2023 Windsor-Essex Pride Fest is now extended with additional days of activities and will be held August 2-13, 2023. From August 2-10, 2023, we will have events at various locations throughout Windsor-Essex and from August 11-13, 2023, we will be at our home in Lanspeary Park on Ottawa Street for the main festival. Favourites such as our official Flag Raising at City Hall, educational work-shops, live entertainment, local retail vendor marketplace, local food vendors, family friendly activities and of course, the annual Pride Fest Parade for all to enjoy this year!
Windsor-Essex Pride Fest continues to be 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 Two-Spirit, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, Intersex and Asexual residents in Windsor-Essex and as a result, strengthening the community overall.
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.
This 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 your consideration of our partnership request and we hope you can support the Windsor-Essex Pride Fest, its social programs and the 2SLGBTQIA+ community in Windsor-Essex.
