10:00am - 2:00pm
Queer Baby Play Group
Calling all queer families with children ages 0 - 6! Join us for play time!
Parent(s)/guardian(s) can stay and play with their child or drop their child off with the child Care provider for a pay what you can donation which goes to the Care provider. The child Care provider is a volunteer from the queer community with experience in child care who has successfully completed a criminal background check. Please note this is not a licensed child care facility. The child Care provider reserves the right to ask anyone to leave, or have a parent/guardian pick up a child, at any point.
While the primary focus is parent(s)/guardian(s) with young children, we know there is a lot of love from within the broader queer community for our amazing families. We welcome people to drop by who are invested in supporting queer families, people without babies who are considering starting a family, people who do care work, as well as folks with older children to share experiences and wisdom, etc. We ask that this be a closed space for queer people only
If BIPOC families have ideas they would like to see happen in the group we will try to make those happen.

PrideWeek

5:30pm - 6:30pm
Halifax Pride Elders Team Meeting
As part of its outreach to the Elders community, Halifax Pride has created a team to do two things: 1) plan specific Elders events and 2) provide input on all events to make sure they’re as Elder-friendly as possible.
Women: in these kind of meetings, men are often overrepresented, and Pride would like to particularly reach out to female Elders and encourage them to help make decisions and plan events. Please join the team if you can.
There will be light refreshments. No need to RSVP.
Where: Halifax Pride Society. Boardroom. Suite 205, 2099 Gottingen St, Halifax, NS B3K
