On behalf of Calgary Pride, Calgary Queer Arts Society, Centre for Sexuality, Skipping Stone Foundation, and all the young people who will feel supported and encouraged to thrive thanks to you...
Thanks to you - We put on a beautiful event for queer youth on May 24th!
Thanks to you - Parents were moved to tears about getting to take their kids to an event that would welcome them exactly as they are!
Thanks to you - One teen shared that after being afraid to leave the house, and nervous about what to expect at the youth event, they had so much fun that they couldn’t wait for the next one!
Thanks to you - We mentored queer youth, employed queer arts professionals and hired queer artists and their allies!
And as if that isn’t enough… thanks to you we raised $55,000 with $9,000 going directly to support our charitable partners who are creating amazing spaces and experiences for queer youth each and every day!
We could never have done this alone, and you made sure we didn’t have to.
Thank you for showing queer youth that they are loved, valued and welcome as part of a diverse, compassionate and culturally vibrant landscape in Calgary!
