'Pride Week' eyed for June this year


Borderland Pride is beginning the planning process for “Pride Week 2019”—the second edition of our community's landmark summer celebration of LGBTQ2 diversity and inclusion.

“Pride” is powered by public participation.

As such, area residents from both sides of the border are invited to the Shaw Room at the Fort Frances Public Library on Wednesday, Feb. 13 at 7 p.m., where “Pride” organizers will kick off the planning process by reviewing the week of festivities in 2018, as well as collecting input and feedback for our 2019 roster of events.

We also will review Borderland Pride's finances, goals, and objectives.

Locals interested in volunteering or helping to co-ordinate any particular events, promotions, or contests during “Pride Week” are encouraged to attend—even if you're not sure exactly what type of involvement you would like to have at this point.

Organizers are looking to hold “Pride Week" in June this year (rather than July) in order to coincide with "Pride Month” and the school year.

More information is available on Facebook while other inquiries may be directed to or 1-807-861-3684.

Borderland Pride is the LGBTQ2 (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, and two-spirit) diversity and inclusion organization for Rainy River District.
