My First Pride Story

My First Pride Story in Winnipeg was at the first March in 1987. It was a time of great fear and anticipation as the Aids Crisis was starting to have a profound impact on our community. Some political leaders wanted our community to be quarantined. Some were getting fired from work because of their health. The air was full of fear and 250 brave souls marched to the Slogan “We are the people in your Neighborhood.” Since that time much has changed, and it is through our collective action and supporting Pride, that we are at the point we are at today! Happy Pride 2018!
