Tri-Community Pride hosts 2SLGBTQQIA+ workshop

In an effort to create a more inclusive and safe community for 2SLGBTQQIA+ individuals in the tri-community area, Tri-Community Pride hosted a free workshop at the beginning of this month. The Rainbow Resource Centre came to The Pas and delivered a workshop called 2SLGBTQQIA+ Awareness, Inclusion and Affirmation, with a question and answer period after.
Tri-Community Pride held two major events so far this year to help create more awareness and inclusion for 2SLGBTQQIA+ individuals.
“Our two largest events this year would have been our drag show and our Pride parade,” said Tri-Community Pride Parade member Derrick Sanderson. “Within the drag show, we had a group from Saskatchewan come out and there were a total of 10 drag performers. We did an early family friendly show and then later an adults only type of show. They both went off very well, with both shows almost filling the Legion Hall. We were very happy with the turnout and people seemed to be as well.
“We weren’t associated with the high school’s drag show that took place also this year, but we were very impressed to see that the tri-community had two drag shows.
