We're more than just a festival.
Windsor-Essex Pride Fest empowers individuals to reach out to each other and facilitates opportunities for connection and belonging through age-specific activities or initiatives, peer-facilitated groups and special events and will address social isolation and create a social environment that is more accommodating, resilient and connected to the broader LGBTIQ2S community in Windsor-Essex. The lack of peer or social support, activities, gatherings or other connective resources in the community cause a form of social isolation that often escalates into a number of problems, including homelessness, depression, violence, suicidal ideation, etc.
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.
