To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Pride in Edmonton, the City has launched its second Pride bus to help recognize the importance of unity, equality and diversity. As with the City’s first Pride bus, which was launched by Edmonton Transit Service in 2019, this bus will be in year-round circulation demonstrating support for the LGBTQ2S+ community.
The new bus is wrapped in with celebratory and inclusive pride artwork. The new creative concept symbolizes colours and identities coming together to embody uniqueness and inclusivity. The design’s pattern does not repeat and has no hierarchy, representing the diversity and inclusion of all GSRM (gender, sexual and romantic minority) identities.
Summer of Pride!
Edmonton Pride Month is June 1-30, 2023.
For those that identify as part of the LGBTQ2S+ community, Pride is about celebrating diversity and inclusion; Pride is about increased visibility and ending the stigma; Pride is about how far we have come towards equality and yet how far we still must go for that right.
Edmonton PrideFest will take place August 18-26 and will include events on Churchill Square.
