PEI’s Gender and Sexual Diversity (GSD/2LGBTQIA+) community raised its voice and held a march to proclaim our pride, as an important and unique community!
We are PEI’s longest running pride festival. Pride PEI, formerly known as the Abegwit Rainbow Collective, is a registered non-profit corporation founded on October 21st, 2015 to unite the voices of various GSD peoples across the island in the production of PEI’s annual Pride Festival.
Today, their voices have grown into a week-long celebration with various events attracting people from all over the Maritimes and even across Canada! The voice of our cities GSD community has been there at important moments including the legislation of equal marriage, the protections for gender identity, and the criminalization of ‘conversion therapy’ under provincial law.
