Kingston Pride

Kingston Pride is a grassroots organization established in 1989 that works to promote awareness and inclusion of the LGBTQ2S+ community.


Kingston has celebrated the diversity of the LGBTTIQQ2SA* community in Kingston and the surrounding area. Kingston Pride coordinates a wide range of activities, including: an annual Pride parade, social gatherings, dances, sporting events, educational workshops, speaker events, film showings, theatrical performances, art exhibitions and more.


Pride gives us the opportunity to be willingly visible in our community; to show the world our diversity; to give thanks to those before us who have campaigned for our rights, and to give voice to our ongoing quest for equality. Despite government legislation, many within the LGBTTIQQ2SA* community of Kingston still live in fear of discrimination. Kingston Pride is our opportunity to confront those fears, to gather as a community and to be out and proud to ourselves and those around us.
