The Halifax Pride Festival is an annual 11 day gathering in the Halifax Regional Municipality for the 2SLGBTQ+ community. It features over 150 community and Pride organized events celebrating the history, culture, activism, and perseverance of the queer community. While the Halifax Pride Society organizes a number of large and small scale events, they engage actively with various queer groups and individuals throughout the year to support them in the planning of their own educational, celebratory, and activist events. Halifax Pride’s purpose is to create spaces for persons of diverse sexual and gender identities to come together and flourish. Their aim is an equitable society free from all forms of oppression.
