North Bay Pride is looking for folks from the 2SLGBTQ+ community that have a talent they want to share during a Facebook live event on Sept 18.
“We know we cannot have a regular festival this year like we have had in the past due to Covid 19, so we thought long and hard on how we can promote some local talent during these difficult times to raise pride spirits and show the world what we can do in North Bay and Area," says Clifford Hummel CEO of North Bay Pride."
Bobby Lagassie, who is helping organize the talent with Jenn Tennant, said “We are looking for talent, any talent. We want to see what North Bay and Area has to offer so we can show the world, what we are about. We are proud of who we are and how far we have come so let us show a new side of pride that is not normally shared on such a large platform like Facebook."
Only a limited number of spaces are available.
“Pride is a protest and will always be a protest," said spokesman Jason Maclennan, "We can see how much Pride is needed these days. Black Lives Matter and our Indigenous communities remind us that society is still challenged by the colour of one’s skin and sexual orientation. Until discrimination ends and everyone is treated equally, there will be no rest for Pride across Canada."
If you are interested in showing your talents and are part of the 2SLGBTQ+ community, email for more information.
