Pride 2023

Participating in Pride is one of the ways that the Nurses’ Union shows our ongoing support for the diversity of our membership. We celebrate our LGBTQ+ members and the valuable work they do for Nova Scotians each and every day.

Pride celebrations are an important opportunity to show support for the LGBTQ+ community and celebrate diversity. The NSNU is a proud sponsor of several Pride events across the province, and our members and staff enjoy participating in events local to them. 

If you're looking for a way to get involved in your local Pride festivities, consider volunteering, attending events, or simply showing up to support the cause. By participating in Pride, you can help create a more inclusive and accepting world for all. Whether it's wearing a rainbow pin or attending a local parade, every little bit helps to spread love and acceptance.
