What is Pride on Your Porch?
We may not be able to assemble in large groups this year to show off our inclusiveness and acceptance of the LGBTQ2S+ community here in Airdrie, but we can show our love and celebrate our differences from our homes.
Imagine what it would be like for someone who is afraid to come out to their friends and family because of an old “story”of hate in rural Alberta. Imagine if that person could go for a walk in their neighborhood or drive down Main street and see just how many people do support them.
This year, instead of gathering a few thousand people in Nose Creek Park we want to spread out the rainbow in all four corners of Airdrie on every doorstep–homes, business, and organizations alike.
Don’t Forget The Hashtag!
Pride month 2020 is all about visibility. Be sure to tag Airdrie Pride on all your social media posts. Share pictures of porches that catch your attention while out for a walk. Use the hashtag #AirdriePrideOnYourPorch so we can all follow along.
And there are prizes!
