After two years of lockdowns and virtual events, Fierté Timmins Pride is back, in person, for the 9th Annual Pride Week Celebration. We at Fierté Timmins Pride are currently seeking community support Pride Week. The festivities will run from Tuesday, September 6th to Sunday, September 11th, 2022 and will begin with a proclamation and flag raising at city hall. We are planning to hold the rally in the downtown core near the newly added rainbow crosswalk, followed by the parade, and the ever-popular drag show. There will be also a variety of affiliate events hosted by community organizations and businesses. We are asking the community to join us in the pride week celebrations in the following ways:
Event Sponsorship - We are looking for sponsors and partners to make the events as grand as possible. This is a great opportunity for your business or organization to show your support of the 2SLGBTQ+ community and show your support as an ally. In recognition of your support, we will gladly promote your business accordingly in the media and on our website. To confirm your sponsorship or for additional information including a comprehensive sponsorship grid, please contact Matti Villeneuve at 705-262-2583 or via email at email@example.com
Rally and Parade - We are asking companies and individuals to participate in the rally and the parade which will occur on Saturday, September 10, 2022 in the afternoon. Come out and join in our walk through the downtown core carrying supportive signs, rainbow flags, banners and other promotional materials from your organization. This is your opportunity to showcase your support of the 2SLGBTQ+ community.
Fill the City with Rainbows - The decorating of organizations and businesses windows in rainbow pride colours is a foundation of the Pride Week Celebrations. We encourage the organizations and businesses in downtown Timmins to participate. It will be an encouraging component while on the parade route for those in the downtown core. Participating in decorating for Pride shows Timmins residents that you are a 2SLGBTQ+ safe space.
Affiliate Events - We would like to encourage you to host your own affiliate event in support of the 9th Annual Pride Week in Timmins. Examples would include hosting a breakfast, hosting a relevant workshop, hosting a poetry reading event, etc. Should you be interested, please ensure that you register your event with Fierté Timmins Pride to allow us to add it to the events calendar and promote it throughout the community.
We would like to thank you for your consideration in supporting Timmins Pride. Your encouragement would certainly help us in supporting the 2SLGBTQ+ community, educating the community at large and increasing the visibility of the queer-identified people of Timmins and the area.
Please contact us to confirm your participation in any of the listed events or should you be interested to support our efforts in any way.
