Halifax Pride Festival
July 18 - July 28
Halifax Pride Festival. Beginning in 1988 with Halifax’s very first Pride March. Members of Halifax’s gay and lesbian community organized Pride Week without the benefit of legal protections. Amid growing unrest about rampant prejudice and discrimination, that first Pride March was a protest against the lack of legal protection from discrimination, and the all-too-common threat of homophobic violence.
About 75 people marched through Halifax’s North End that first year. A handful wore paper bags over their heads, not out of shame, but out of fear for their livelihoods and their safety. Since, the Halifax Pride Festival has grown into a commemoration, reflection, and celebration that includes numerous events that highlight the unique character of our diverse community, welcoming upwards of 120,000 participants every summer.
