Who We Are

Founded in 2017, Stratford-Perth Pride is a non-profit organization that provides 2SLGBTQIA+ programming, resources and education to make Stratford, St. Marys & Perth County a more welcoming, accepting and inclusive community. 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.
