2021 Pride Festival
RRANS Co-Founder Corrie Melanson moderated a panel for Halifax Pride's Noon-Hour Panel Series this year. The panel, which can be watched through the link above, brought together 2SLGBTQ+ newcomers to discuss overcoming social isolation - a barrier that had been compounded during the COVID-19 pandemic.
RRANS participated in the Halifax Pride Community Wellness Fair on August 14th & 15th. We got the chance to meet community members, tell them about some of the work RRANS does, and we found some new volunteers.
We also held our Queering the World: Welcome BBQ on Sunday, August 15th. The event was very well attended, and we were able to give out veggie and chicken dogs, plus some gelato and chips, to attendees. The event was set to the wonderful music of DJ Zuluboy.
