Pride Month

See what’s happening

Pride is about coming together as a community to celebrate the freedom to be yourself, to uplift and honour LGBTQ2+ activism, and to support LGBTQ2+ rights. Here you can celebrate some local talent, learn about the allies and activists in your community, as well as a listing of free local events and resources available to you through your local library.

Flag Raising

Innisfil Pride will raise the Progressive Unity Flag at Town Hall on June 10 at 3 p.m. The event will be closed due to COVID-19, but will be streamed live on Innisfil Pride’s Facebook!

Virtual Tea / Unity Café
