Halifax Pride writes on Instagram:

At Halifax Pride’s recent 2023 Annual General Meeting, nine 2SLGBTQIAP+ community organizers joined the board with the goal of rejuvenating the struggling organization. After a challenging year, this Board plans to chart a new course for Halifax Pride.

Over the next year, the new Board will prioritize a variety of tasks including contracting an interim Operations Manager, re-establishing regular communications with our community, conducting a review of finances, and beginning preparations for the 2024 festival.

We want to express our sincere gratitude and admiration to our brilliant communities for their collaborative efforts in building such a vibrant community-run Pride celebration this past July. The events held, and spaces offered, brought our 2SLGBTQIAP+ communities together and were clearly planned with the utmost love and care.

Pride is as important now as ever. We see history repeating, with prejudiced and ignorant attacks used against our community by those who want to divide and control others. We call on each of us to step up in whatever way we can, to keep one another safe, to share our truths, and to stand together in protest.

Pride is necessary, Pride is powerful, and we can’t wait to celebrate Pride with you all! We look forward to introducing our Board and sharing our plans as we move forward together.
