Pride 2021 – A Celebration of Diversity

The Nova Scotia Nurses’ Union is pleased to be a sponsor of 2021 Pride events across the province.

Although we are sadly looking at another year without traditional parades, that doesn’t mean Pride can’t go ahead with aplomb. Halifax Pride, Cape Breton Pride and other organizations across Nova Scotia are working hard to bring Pride love and events all summer long. Through it all, works by and for Nova Scotia’s 2SLGBTQ+ community will be highlighted and celebrated.

Pride Cape Breton is planning their event for August 5-12, as usual. The Halifax Pride Festival, traditionally held in July, has been moved to August 12-22. In both cases, the Pride teams are planning a mix of live and online events to ensure festivals that celebrate diversity in a safe and accessible way.

The NSNU is proud to represent 2SLGBTQ+ nurses working across the province. Members are encouraged to take part in Pride events throughout the summer, online and in your hometown.

Pride may look different this year, but…

  • Diversity is still beauty.
  • Unity is still power.
  • Inclusion is still health.
  • Health is still opportunity
  • Love is still love.
