THE PRIDE OF PERTH COUNTY

Who We Are

Founded in 2017, Stratford-Perth Pride is the official Pride organization of Stratford, St. Marys and Perth County.
Over the years we’ve gone through several names including the ‘LGBTQ+ Friends and Allies of Perth County’ and ‘Infinite Pride Stratford and in June 2021 we launched our new name (Stratford-Perth Pride) with a new logo, brand and website.

We work in partnership with North Perth Pride and the Stratford Pride Community Centre to make all of Perth County a place for all LGBTQ2S+ place to live, work and visit.  We are run by a group of dedicated and passionate volunteers and as of Spring 2022 we are now a registered non-profit. 

Our Mission

Stratford-Perth Pride provides LGBTQ2S+ programming to make Perth County a more welcoming, accepting and inclusive community for gender and sexually diverse individuals.

OUR VISION

To make Perth County a place where no matter who you love or how you identify, you will be safe, valued, equal and proud.

Inclusivity

Equity

Stratford-Perth Pride provides programming on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, and Ojibway/Chippewa peoples. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties. 

As settlers on Indigenous land, we must remain mindful of the agreements that have been made – and broken – with Indigenous Peoples. Stratford-Perth Pride strives to respect this land and will continuously work towards true reconciliation through peace and friendship with all who call it home – including Two Spirit, Indigiqueer, and LGBTQ+ Indigenous Peoples.
