Pride Month 2024

June is celebrated as Pride Month worldwide to honour the 2SLGBTQIA+ community and their struggle for equal rights and opportunities. During this month, we come together to recognize the progress made towards achieving equality while highlighting the work that still needs to be done.

Across the globe, millions of individuals, organizations, and businesses show their support for the 2SLGBTQIA+ community by participating in parades, events, and social media campaigns.

This webpage aims to provide information on the 2024 Pride Month activities happening in Perth County.
