Over the course of three days, from Aug. 15-17, Fierté Montréal Pride will be hosting a National LGBTTIQA2S Human Rights Conference as part of the inaugural Canada Pride Montréal 2017. The conference will examine complex issues from Queer Representation in the Media, to Rape Culture + Sexual Violence in the Gay Community, to Parental Advocacy under Trump/Trudeau.

Canada Pride Montréal 2017, hosted by Fierté Montréal Pride, will be one of the most thought-provoking and ideologically complex events this year in Canada. Ranging from the national human rights conference and a dedicated Francophonie conference, to community activities, dances, concerts, and the parade, communities will gather together to both contemplate and celebrate.
