Pride will go on!
The Halifax Pride Festival kicks off on July 16th and even though we’re experiencing some strange times pride cannot be canceled! We’re all figuring out what the post-pandemic world looks like. With events getting canceled across the world, we expected changes to the festival. The good news is that much of the 2020 festival will be hosted online! Virtual events have popped up in cities such as Toronto, New York, and now Halifax!
