“Regina’s streets were alive with the vibrant colors of the rainbow as thousands gathered to celebrate diversity and inclusion at the Queen City Pride Parade. It was a day where the 2SLGBTQ+ community and allies came together to honor love and acceptance,” said QCP co-chair Riviera Bonneau.

The Parade: A Symbol of Unity and Progress

This year’s parade saw a record-breaking 129 entrants, bringing people of all ages and backgrounds to participate and show their support. Chants of “Happy Pride” echoed through the downtown core, creating an atmosphere of joy and celebration. The parade culminated in front of the Saskatchewan legislative building, where pride and unity were on full display.

The Evolution of Pride: From Protest to Celebration

Over the past 35 years, Pride has transformed from a protest into a powerful symbol of belonging and equality. As members of the LGBTQ2S+ community and allies come together to celebrate, it is a reminder of how far we have come in the fight against discrimination and prejudice.

The Controversy: Perspectives and Challenges

However, amidst the celebration, there were also challenges and controversies. The Sask. Party government was banned from participating in the parade and pride celebrations across the province due to their controversial ‘Parents bill of Rights.’ This decision sparked debate and highlighted the ongoing struggles faced by the LGBTQ+ community.

In conclusion, the Queen City Pride Parade is not just a festival; it is a reflection of the ongoing fight for equality and acceptance. As we look back on the history of Pride and the progress we have made, it is essential to acknowledge the challenges that still lie ahead. Let us continue to support and uplift each other, standing united in the pursuit of a more inclusive and accepting society.”
