Join us at our 18th Annual Mayor's Pride Brunch: June 10, 2023 at 10:30 AM - 1 PM at Hall C in the Edmonton Convention Centre! 

The Pride Brunch raises funds to support our 2SLGBTQ+ programs: Camp fYrefly, the AB GSA Conference, Fyrefly in Schools, Where the Rivers Meet, the Family Resilience Project, and CHEW Project YEG. Proceeds from the brunch will ensure that we can continue doing what we love: supporting 2SLGBTQ+ folks so that we can create a future where they thrive and are free from discrimination!

The brunch will be MC'd by Canadian-British television and radio personality, Mike Chalut, and will include remarks by our Executive Director, Dr. Glynnis Lieb, UAlberta's President Bill Flanagan, an appearance by Mayor Amarjeet Sohi, and an extravagant drag performance by our talented CHEW Project YEG Youth: Etherea, Gurlquisha, and Desire Devine. There will also be music by Girls Club DJ, Bev! Engage in community connection and enjoy some delicious brunch goodies!

About the Mayor's Pride Brunch 

The Mayor's Pride Brunch is an annual event that is held during Pride Month (in June of each year) to raise funds for our programs, which are dedicated to supporting, uplifting, and fostering connection for the 2SLGBTQ+ community. In addition to fundraising for our programs, the event increases awareness of the supportive programming that our organization offers. In the past, our brunches have included hosts like MLAs and MPs, speeches from notable community members and public figures, amazing drag and musical performances, and games or contests! The events also give people a chance to engage in community and always include an appearance and speech by the Mayor. 

The programs that we offer are: 

  • Where the Rivers Meet
  • AB GSA Conference
  • Family Resilience Project 
  • Camp fYrefly
