Pride Week 2014
PRIDE is a reminder of what’s been done by those before us, and a push to keep working for full equality. Pride pushes us onward and upward. It’s a chance to get inspired and motivated. Pride is for people at home and people around the globe. Pride is for Uganda, Russia, Iran, Nigeria, and so many other places. Pride matters. Maybe not to everyone. But to some. PRIDE is all you really need.
Darren Hill – Councillor - Ward 1, City of Saskatoon
Pride is our opportunity to stand, walk, march and celebrate the people we were and are as an LGBTQ community united. We plan to bring you a festival that not only has you proud to be a part of our community but gives you the chance to say” Look At Us Now”.
Danny Papadatos – Chair of SDN
Danny Papadatos was named Mr. Gay Canada 2013. The judges of the competition said his passion for making a safer, more inclusive space for all people, along with his strong leadership skills, made him a natural choice. Danny's positive attitude is contagious - a perfect example of Saskatoon's spirited energy.
