Submit your 2021 Community Event

Feature your Community Event in this year’s Queen City Pride Festival programme and promotions. A Community Event is an officially recognized event or activity scheduled to take place during and for the Queen City Pride Festival and organized entirely or in part by community groups, non-profit organizations, or businesses. Any group or organization is welcome to submit their event for consideration and if approved, that event will be included in the festival’s official programming and promotions.

Please do your best to submit your event or activity by May 14, 2021. Submissions made after the suggested deadline can still be added to the Digital Pride Guide when possible.

Event Criteria & Guidelines

Submitting your event for the 2021 Queen City Pride Festival helps us to follow and promote all of the activities taking place during the 10-day long festival.

When planning your event/activity, we encourage you to take into consideration the needs of our community. Our goals as a community festival are to provide events that are open and accessible to everyone, promote the education and awareness of 2SLGBTQIA+ people, and advocate for the lives of people within our community who continue to experience violence and marginalization in society.

Consider the following:

  • Prioritizing Black, Indigenous, Two-Spirit, Trans and gender-diverse artists, performers, and speakers
  • Events/activities that don’t require technology/internet access
  • Supplying PPE and sanitizer to promote COVID-19 safety
  • gender-neutral washrooms
  • wheelchair and mobility accessibility
  • Captioning and ASL interpretation
  • substance and alcohol-free spaces
  • no-cost and low-cost admission
  • sound amplification
  • proximity to bus stops
  • and the specific needs of your audience

If you’d like to talk to us about making your event more open and accessible to your audience, feel free to contact us.

Positive Space Training

In previous years, Regina Pride has required Community Event Partners to take “Positive Space” training to help ensure that all Pride Festival events can meet the demand for safer and more inclusive spaces in our city.

Until training sessions can be arranged, this will not be a requirement for the 2021 Festival.

Community Event Partners are still asked to review their event plans and consider how they can take steps to ensure that they uphold the spirit of creating “Positive Spaces” that are safer and braver for everyone.
