"We are thrilled that the City of Owen Sound has partnered with us to raise the Pride flag, as a sign that all people,gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, two-spirit, and our allies are welcome here. To be certain, raising the Pride flag is a symbolic gesture, but it is one which has the power to lift hearts, embolden struggling souls, and broaden perspectives. It's important because many Pride members are your business owners, customers, tax payers, elected officials, health care professionals, civil servants, and retirees, and ALL are a part of this community.

We have seen laws change over the years and we have seen agencies, schools, and businesses become more supportive and inclusive. However, many of us of all ages still experience the impact of homophobic and transphobic bullying today. For these reasons, we celebrate Pride during the month of June.

Grey Bruce Pride welcomes you all to participate in many of the organized activities occurring in the municipalities of Grey and Bruce throughout the month of June."

All Owen Sound events here.
