We’re having a PRIDE Pop-Up Photoshoot!
We want to encourage our community and it’s supporters to come and share your pride by taking part in this project.
We know it’s been a year of injustice for our Black, Indigenous & People of Colour communities. It has also been a year of uncertainty, hard work and missed opportunities for others, due to COVID-19. So we want to see you, and we want our city to see us as a strong, united LBGTQ2IAA+ family.
• Come show your support for the Black Lives Matter movement and Indigenous rights movement.
• If you are an essential worker during hard during the COVID-19 pandemic, come proudly in your scrubs.
• If you missed grad or your wedding, come in your formal wear!
• Come show your Pride in your best Pride outfit!
• Can’t afford a family photo this year? Come have one taken!
Come one, come all, but come in your cohorts/ bubbles as per Alberta health restrictions.
We will be at the Galt Museum & Archives, outside near the main entrance with our famous PRIDE letters from 11 AM – 4 PM with the help of some amazing photographers; Melanie Cervo (Photo Expressions) and Tanya Plonka (Tanya Plonka Photography)!
This event is free, but we will be taking donations to support the Sage Clan Patrol (http://sageclan.ca ). We will be taking cash, debit or credit donations at the event. Pride Fest will also be selling Pride merch with all proceeds going to Sage Clan Patrol.
Please keep in mind that all photos will be posted on our public Facebook page. If you prefer that your photos do not go online, please let us know upon arrival and you’re more than welcome to use your own photo-taking device.
