Caledon Pride

What is Caledon Pride?

Caledon Pride is a peer-led 2SLGBTQ+ focused group dedicated to creating an inclusive community for all in Caledon, Ontario!

We organize social and educational events, provide resources on gender and sexuality and host social gatherings. In addition, Caledon Pride provides assistance in directing individuals to external 2SLGBTQ+ resources (such as inclusive health teams).

Accessible to anyone within the Caledon area, this group functions mainly as a service for isolated 2SLGBTQ+ individuals to find companionship and understanding. We address a serious issue of severe isolation and loneliness that often 2SLGBTQ+ individuals report experiencing.

“I started Caledon Pride to advocate for the 2SLGBTQ+ Community here in Caledon, and my goal is to create positive spaces for community members to connect with each other and feel supported. This is my community, and I want to support and encourage everyone to feel confident and safe as they learn to express themselves.”

Peel Pride Fundraiser

All of July

Pride Month is a time to reflect, educate, and spread awareness.

One of Caledon Pride’s largest goals is to bring more accessible services to our community members. Times are tough, especially if you have no one to talk to, that’s why we’re raising funds and awareness to benefit an organization that we think more Caledon residents should know about.

During the whole month of Pride, we will be fundraising for LGBT Youth Line. LGBT Youth Line is a Queer, Trans, Two-Spirit youth-led organization that affirms and supports the experiences of youth (29 and under) across Ontario.

Help us in giving back and support a local service that would greatly benefit Caledon’s youth.We’ll be encouraging viewers to donate to our month-long fundraiser, all proceeds go to LGBT Youth Line
