Fierté Simcoe Pride
July 25 to August 7, 2022
This marks the
eleventh annual Fierté Simcoe Pride, and its purpose is to create a safe and
inclusive Simcoe County that supports gender and sexual diversity through
services, activities and events; and
The Intersex Progress
Pride flag is raised to honour gender and sexual diversity in Simcoe County.
The Intersex Progress Pride flag was designed by Valentino Vecchietti in the UK
in 2021. The flag is a combination of Gilbert Baker’s 1978 Pride flag, Daniel
Quasar’s 2018 Progress Pride flag, and Morgan Carpenter’s 2013 Intersex flag.
The flag is a symbol of the Pride movement and the advancement of human rights
for sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, sex characteristics;
Fierté Simcoe Pride was formed on May 13, 2012, and its mission is “to create and offer inclusive events, services, and educational opportunities that rise above heterosexism, heteronormativity and homo/bi/transphobia, promoting safe communities within Simcoe County"; and
Fierté Simcoe Pride is filled with numerous events and activities that focus on education, awareness, community development, creative expression and fun for the whole family. Please visit www.fiertesimcoepride.com to learn more about FSP and its activities.
