What a wonderful week of events we had during the 2018 Elk Valley Pride Festival!
Pride in Fernie and the Elk Valley has grown and changed so much in the last year and a half since the Fernie Pride Society was formed. We are working hard to create safer and more inclusive communities where LGBTQ individuals can live, work, and play just as they are.
We want to thank everyone; staff, volunteers, the City of Fernie, donors and sponsors, partner organizations, and particularly each and every member of the LGBTQ+ community and our allies for standing with the Fernie Pride Society and Elk Valley Pride Festival, and for showing your commitment to us. Mark your calendars for the second week in October next year for the 2019 Elk Valley Pride Festival!
Elk Valley Pride Festival’s piece de resistance in 2018 was the Fernie Pride Society’s Fun’d Raising event, Saturday night’s Dragilicious Dance Party, featuring Misty Meadows, the Drag Empress of BC, with her entourage Amy Grindhouse and PM. The goal of this year’s Dragilicious Dance Party was to raise funds to help the society pursue its mission to support and connect the LGBTQ community in the Elk Valley and to continue to work toward making the Elk Valley a safe, inclusive community. It was a huge success and the society would like to thank all the donors and supporters of this great event. Stay tuned for next year's program and fund raising party - tentative schedule for the second week in October 2019!
