Pride Month is a movement that celebrates sexual diversity, promoting the dignity, equal rights, self-affirmation and is a way of increasing society’s awareness of the issues faced by the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. The creative industries celebrate pride month to amplify the creative strength of 2SLGBTQIA+ communities across British Columbia.
