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.

our values

Pride
Remembrance 
Inclusivity 
Diversity 
Equity

Stratford-Perth Pride provides programming in an area now known as Perth County, Ontario. 

Since time immemorial, this land and its waterways have been home and rightfully belong to the Anishinaabe, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Wendat, and the Attiwonderonk.

Today, and everyday we must all remain mindful of the agreements that have been made – and broken – with Indigenous Peoples. We invite all of you to join Stratford-Perth Pride as we continuously work towards true reconciliation through peace and friendship with all who call Turtle Island home – including Two Spirit, Indigiqueer, and LGBTQ+ Indigenous Peoples.
