Be Strong. Be Proud. Be You.

Soyez fort.e.s. Soyez fier.e.s. Soyez vous.

Recognizing, valuing, celebrating, supporting two-spirit, queer, lesbian, gay, trans, bi, and other gender- and sexually-diverse people and their families.

Your voice needs to be heard.

You are the face and voice of Saskatoon Pride. We wish to create a diverse and inclusive organization and to reflect all our communities in our celebration of Pride. All Saskatoon Pride events and initiatives are reviewed to ensure they embrace these ideals.

2020 has been a year of challenge as the pandemic forced us to find ways for our community members to connect virtually and express their Pride, connect with others, and to support and centre the voices of Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour to create awareness of systemic injustice and our individual and collective responsibility to make change.

The Annual General Meeting of Saskatoon Diversity Network Inc. (Saskatoon Pride) will be held:

  • October 22, 2020
  • 7:00 pm CST
  • On Zoom (watch for the link here).

 

The current Board will:

  • report on its activity
  • answer questions
  • discuss and vote on proposed bylaw changes
  • refresh the organization with a newly-elected board.

 

Watch our social channels for more details on how to purchase a membership ($5) in advance, and receive a link to the virtual meeting. A membership is required in order to vote at the meeting.

Two Spirit Ball

Two Spirit people are an integral part of the fabric of Saskatoon’s queer community. Saskatoon Pride presents a celebration of two spirit artists and allies from Saskatchewan and across Turtle Island. We hope it is one of many steps on the path to reconciliation and inclusion. Listen, learn, and above all, enjoy the gifts and voices of the Two Spirit Ball.

Thank you to the sponsors and funders for this event: TD, City of Saskatoon, Sask Lotteries, Government of Canada. 

Saskatoon Virtual Pride Parade

Saskatoon stepped up when Saskatoon Pride was unable to hold its usual Pride Parade due to the COVID-19 pandemic. There was an outpouring of love and support for the two spirit and queer community from across the community. The parade included a segment from the Black Lives Matter Saskatoon chapter and from Idle No More. The Virtual Parade is call to the 2020 theme of Saskatoon Pride: “Be Strong. Be Proud. Be You.”

Global Queer, Trans, and Intersex Human Rights in a COVID-19 World

The Global Queer, Trans, and Intersex Human Rights in a COVID-19 World international panel discussion was a powerful learning experience for Saskatoon, Canada, and across the globe. Many thanks to Dignity Network Canada for co-presenting this event and to CUPE National for their generous sponsorship, and to CBC/Radio-Canada who made possible Omayra Issa’s participation as moderator of the event.

Saskatoon Pride

Black Lives Matter. We support Black, Indigenous, and all People of Colour as they struggle to be heard, valued, and respected. Saskatoon Pride vows to use its platform to elevate BIPOC voices during the Festival and always. We are evaluating our events, activities and engagement  to this end. We need to ask, listen, and act. 

We will work with others to make our community safe, welcoming, and equitable for all. Pride began as a protest became a riot and continued to evolve into a celebration as more rights were won in the fight for inclusion and acceptance. Now and in the days ahead, we look for guidance and opportunity to to connect, make change, and share our Pride.
