Community Feature: Oh Doughnuts

oh_doughnuts

Oh Doughnuts has the fantastic distinction of being LGBT* owned and operated, with about half of our staff identifying as LGBT*. Many of us have relied on Pride week to feel surrounded by love and acceptance, and we are overwhelmed by joy to be able to support such a happy and inclusive event. Winnipeg Pride is so important for our LGBT* community as it provides a safe and supportive gathering opportunity for everyone. Manitoba can be conservative and insular, making it difficult for our friends in need to find acceptance and allies. Winnipeg Pride provides a great opportunity for everyone in our community to connect and see that we aren’t alone.

As witnessed last year in Steinbach, our supportive community is just one of our strengths. There is always room to promote awareness and acceptance, and this year is no different. Steinbach will host their 2nd Pride March on July 15th and we couldn’t be prouder to be part of a community that transcends borders and backgrounds to support each other.

On this 30th anniversary of Winnipeg Pride, everyone here at Oh Doughnuts encourages you to celebrate yourselves, celebrate our differences and support those who are making LGBT* inclusive spaces.

We’ll see you for pride doughnuts before the parade.

Happy Pride from everyone at Oh Doughnuts!
