The Six Nations Pride Outreach committee has been busy preparing for Pride 2023 since last year’s successful string of events. This year celebrants can expect Ride 4 Pride to return for its fourth year as well as a second annual Paddle 4 Pride and several other events staggered throughout the summer months.
Ride 4 Pride is expected to take place July 8 with the route and details surrounding the event yet to be determined. Participants can rest assured that the Six Nations Pride Outreach committee has taken feedback and successes from previous years’ events into consideration as they plan the route and make adjustments to road safety, timelines, police presence, and include more safety measures.
As with previous years, participants are encouraged to take part however they choose to in the ride, whether via walking, biking, skateboarding, running, scootering or another mode of transportation. There will be water stations set up at the beginning and end of the journey.
Throughout June and July, the group is also hosting weekly paddles at Chiefswood Park with a larger Paddle 4 Pride event to take place on August 19. More event details to come regarding Paddle 4 Pride.
The group is excited to announce its first Haudenosaunee queer gathering in October on the 28th which will be followed by a queer prom. What might a queer prom look like on Six Nations? The group says to stay tuned for more details or visit the group’s social media pages for more details as they are released.
