The COVID-19 crisis is taking an unfortunate toll on a large number of businesses in our City. This year, Airdrie Pride is not looking for sponsor donations but instead we pledge to support and promote Airdrie businesses that help us celebrate Pride Month. Whether it be a Pride-Themed menu item, a Pride-tastic window display, or countless other Pride-inspired ways to celebrate, we want to encourage Airdrie businesses to “share the love” in our community in the hopes our community will return the favor. Airdrie Pride will be sharing stories of inclusive Airdrie businesses throughout Pride Month, and ask that you celebrate by giving them your patronage.
We are looking for LGBTQ2S+ friendly businesses in Airdrie!
As part of this year’s goal of Friendraising instead of Fundraising, we want to shine a rainbow light on all our partners throughout Pride Month. Please reach out to us if you’d like to be highlighted as a safe space for our community to enjoy so we can make sure our local businesses continue to thrive. Send us a quick email if you are interested at Kiersten@AirdriePride.ca
