* 8. Peterborough Pride Theme for 2018

Every year we have a theme for Pride to help focus participation and hopefully provoke thought about some element of what it is like to be LGBTIP2SQQA.

Last year the theme was "Out for Good" and we want to hear your ideas for this year. Can you think of events or issues that inspire you in proposing a theme?

The theme should be a catchy word or short phrase to express a feeling you want people to embrace during Pride Week.

Please share your ideas here.

* 9. Pride Programming

Peterborough Pride is a community-driven event. So our question to you is, what would you like to see this year and how can you help make that happen? Pride week 2018 runs from September 14-23rd. Pride Week is to meant to highlight our community by holding events and raising our visibility in the broader community. Peterborough Pride organizes the parade and park events on the 22nd and encourage others to propose events such as performances, films, talks, dances etc. that fit within the mission and values of Pride. To help make Pride Week great, reflect the diversity and intersectional identities in our community, we need you to suggest events, organizers, and performers that you would like to see involved this year.

Better yet, we'd like you to actually run an event! Peterborough Pride consists of a small group of volunteers. so we depend on you, our community, to not only generate great ideas, but to put them in action. The best part is, in keeping with Pride's mandate, we will support you financially and through advertising to ensure your event is a success! If you're interested in putting on an event, let us know and we'll give you further details.
