Welcome / Bienvenue
Fierté Timmins Pride unites and engages individuals and organizations to educate, advocate, and support the 2SLGBTQ+ community in Timmins and surrounding areas.
Fierté Timmins Pride is a not-for-profit organization made up completely of volunteers. Everyone who works on behalf of the organization does so in their free time. Thanks to some funding opportunities the organization has been able to hire a full-time coordinator.
The first Pride event Timmins hosted was in 2014. It started as a few organizations and community members celebrating to promote diversity and inclusion. Today, Pride week has grown. The events are grander, the parade is longer, and the crowds are larger.
Fierté Timmins Pride is celebrating a HUGE milestone this upcoming Pride season. 10 years of making Timmins and surrounding areas more inclusive and welcoming to the 2SLGBTQ+ community. This year, Fierté Timmins Pride has planned for a Pride week worthy of the 10 years of accomplishments. We are looking to local organizations and businesses to join in the celebration in a variety of ways.
