The River Ran Proud with Rainbows
It’s that time of year again, when the Queers from all over, flow to Saskatoon for our Annual Saskatoon Pride Festival! This year, the Saskatoon Diversity Network, will be hosting over 25 different events during Pride Week! Pride Festivities will be running from June 9th to June 16th, the pre-pride events happening on June 8th. The big kicker! The Pride Parade will be on June 16th starting 1 pm.
Be sure to keep your eyes out for the USSU Pride Centre at the various events over the next week. It’ll be like a “Where’s the Pride?” version of “Where’s Waldo?”
