Created in 2007 by Montréal’s 2SLGBTQI+ communities, the Montréal Pride festival promotes their rights and celebrates their cultural richness and social progress. It is the largest gathering of people of sexual and gender diversity in the French-speaking world, works locally on a daily basis and serves as a beacon of hope for people living in areas hostile to our communities. Montréal Pride presents its activities in Tiohtia:ke, on the unceded territory of the Kanien’kehá:ka Nation. We recognize her as the custodian of the lands and waters on which we gather. Tiohtia:ke is historically known as a gathering place for many First Nations, and today a diverse Aboriginal population, as well as other peoples, reside there. It is in respect for the connections to the past, present and future that we recognize the ongoing relationships between Aboriginal Peoples and others in the Montréal community.
