Who We Are & What We Do

The Truro Pride Society fosters the relationship with the local 2SLGBTQIA+ community and the traditional, business, and political communites of Colchester County.


The Truro Pride Society creates conversations and fosters understanding between 2SLGBTQIA+community members and the members of the local, traditional, and social communities in which they reside. Conversations are respectful, inclusive, celebrate diversity, and conducted to encourage intersectionality. Truro Pride will advocate for safer spaces, celebratory events, such as the Truro Pride Parade, and better understanding of 2SLGBTQIA+ challenges and successes.
