About Regina Pride

Organizers of the Queen City Pride Festival

The Festival

The Queen City Pride Festival is an annual, week-long celebration of the LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans*, and Queer) community of Regina and the greater region of South Saskatchewan. The festival features a series of events, organized by Regina Pride and other community organizations, that focus on highlighting our culture, history, achievements, and struggles. Every event strives to educateentertain, and enlighten participants on our sexual and gender diverse community. The Queen City Pride Festival takes place during the month June, along with Prince Albert Pride, Saskatoon Pride, Moose Jaw Pride, and Swift Current Pride. These festivals take place during Saskatchewan’s “Pride Month”, as proclaimed by the Government of Saskatchewan each year.

The Organization

Regina Pride Inc. is a volunteer-based non-profit organization focussed on outreach, community development, and celebration for the LGBTQ community of Regina through the Queen City Pride Festival and numerous other annual events. Throughout the year leading up to each festival, the Board of Directors hosts various fundraisers, seeks sponsorships, applies for grants, and spends countless hours working with other community organizations to ensure each Pride Festival builds on the past.

The Team

Meet the team that works year-round representing Regina’s LGBTQ community and putting together the annual celebration of our community and culture. Each member brings to the table their own knowledge and experience as involved members of the community. We encourage you to say “Hi!” and get to know us. We value your opinions and feedback and use it to help better represent the community and present a Pride Festival that truly represents us.
