Egale in Action

Spotlight

Over the last year, 2SLGBTQI and ally communities across Canada have shown just how resilient and resourceful we are.​ To celebrate Pride 2021, Egale has launched #PrideInside2021 – a collection of online events, accessible activities, shareable graphics and more to help people connect and celebrate safely.

​We are still celebrating inside our homes, but inside our hearts we are resilient.
