June is pride month, and a colourful month for many, so “let their rainbow selves be free,” says Joshua Wolchansky, the spokesperson for the upcoming Fruit Loop Pride event.
This is the first Fruit Loop Pride event held in person after two years. The first day is for those 18+ only, and it features street parties, shows and dance parties. On the second day, all ages are welcome to enjoy the drag brunch picnic and food trucks. The final day features workshops.
Wolchansky says that people should expect “a sense of pride [and] a celebration of [the] LGBTQ+ community in Edmonton.”
While the event is free admission, Wolchansky suggests bringing a few bills to support the local performers and organizations, and of course, to “support love. That’s what pride is all about. It’s about a sense of community and a sense of love.”
Fruit Loop Pride Reunited runs from June 3-5 at the Grindstone Theatre and Old Strathcona garage district.
