Thank you!

Thank YOU for Supporting qathet Pride 2021
Over 300 people attended.
Our 2 week celebration included 6 community events for all ages and 7 drag events, two of which were for younger folks. Thank you to the host venues, everything from bingo to scavenger hunts, craft nights, outdoor screenings and of course a drag & talent show. More than $1,300 of prizes were donated by 25 local businesses. All volunteer run, celebrating Pride with our 2SLGBTQIA+ family and allies. Events were limited in size due to COVID and free of charge with one by donation.
The crowd went wild and is asking for more !
