Everything looks a little different in 2020, but that won’t stop Capital Pride from going strong! You can tune into this year’s programming from the comfort of home, hence this year’s pride slogan, #WhereverWeAre.
There are many exciting events to look forward to, including the beloved Capital Pride Pageant. The Odawa Two-Spirit, Trans and Gender Diverse March is putting on a Virtual Ottawa Trans-Fest 2020. And Todrick Hall fans can get excited too! He’s joined by iskwē, The Peptides and Kimberly Sunstrum for performances.
As well, if Rupaul’s Drag Race has been a huge part of your pandemic experience, we’ll hear from a few icons from the show. Drag Race alumni, Latrice Royale, will be hosting Drag Bingo. You can enjoy the talents of Jujubee and Crystal Methyd as well as several Ottawa drag queens at Its Drag Henny.
You’ll be able to support 2SLGBTQ+ business owners at a community marketplace presented through the Ottawa Art Gallery.
The opening ceremonies take place this Sunday, August 23. You can enjoy the festivities through to the following Sunday, August 30th. Check out the full Capital Pride schedule and how you can take part here.
