Calgary Pride: Pride & Politics

The Dept supported Calgary Pride to solicit public and stakeholders feedback on if and how politicians should be included in their Pride parade.


In 2019, Calgary Pride decided that politicians could participate in their parade only by invitation from community groups, rather than as unique groups within the parade. In February 2020, the Dept supported Calgary Pride in a day of public and stakeholder discussions to review this decision and a range of other options for political representation. The feedback will help guide and support Calgary Pride, so they can make informed decisions for future events that take community perspectives into account.
