As we launch into the 2020 Pride season, Pride organizations across Canada are finding ways to bring Pride into homes from coast to coast to coast. Egale is excited to announce that we are launching a #PrideInside campaign this June to help make the most of Pride celebrations this summer across Canada.

As many of us know, Pride is something we feel and it is the actions we take to express and share those feelings with those around us. Pride might be indoors this year, but it's also an opportunity to reflect on all of the things we are proud of within ourselves and our community. #PrideInside is about sharing our inner Pride farther, wider, louder and more colourfully than ever before, but from inside of course!

Our Pride Inside campaign, which will be available on our website starting next week, has activity ideas, resources, info-sheets, sharable and engaging online content, plus a few exciting events.  

For our corporate and business partners, our donation-based #PrideInside Guide also features access to virtual inclusivity training – perfect for our new online reality – plus resources to support your Employee Resource Groups and Diversity & Inclusion teams as they celebrate #PrideInside with your colleagues and the communities you serve.

Get in touch with our team today at and be the first to receive Egale’s Pride Inside Guide for Businesses. 

Follow us on social @EgaleCanada to get all of our #PrideInside free resources, social media shareable content, event updates and more!
