Ottawa’s annual LGBTQ2 community party attracts thousands of revellers for a weeklong, high-energy event. There’s a family BBQ, dance parties, and special events like an Alt Queer Art & Fashion Swap and a Pride Youth Movie Night.
The festival also includes a human rights vigil and culminates with the much-loved Pride Parade, a global expression of freedom and love.
