It is with great sadness that a decision has been made to postpone Kemptville Pride Parade. This has not been an easy decision but considering the COVID-19 state of emergency it is in the best interest for the safety of all our supporters, volunteers, vendors, and our community.
Due to the importance this event has for our community, we have chosen an alternate date for the beginning of October but will wait and see what directives the federal and provincial governments offer going forward.
Rest assured that our planning committee is committed to ensuring that the vulnerable LGBTQ2+ community is not forgotten in this time. We are offering support and access to resources where possible. Please be sure to check our Facebook page and website for information.
June is Pride month and we are not going to let it go by unnoticed. We are working diligently to create some exciting and interactive content that we will do virtually throughout the month. We are working through the details and will share the finalized schedule as soon as it’s ready.
Due to many Pride cancellations around the globe, a Global Virtual Pride event is being planned. We are watching very closely for details and will share that information as soon as it has been released. We are excited to be able to share and stream along with them.
Our organization is always in need of more volunteers. If you have some time to spare and/or some virtual knowledge you can share, we would appreciate the help. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org or through our Facebook page.
