Mayor's Pride Brunch


June 16, 2024 10 AM - 1 PM Edmonton Convention Centre


This year’s brunch marks 20 years of our continual advocacy for the 2SLGBTQ+ community (which we have been doing since before marriage equality was achieved in Canada).

Through education, research, advocacy, and support, and with you, our wonderful community, by our side, we have achieved so much. Each year, our community comes together to raise funds and awareness for our programs and services, ensuring that they continue.

This year's event will include iconic brunch goodies, drag by the RGGs, and features Dr. Lana Whiskeyjack, Mayor Amarjeet Sohi, and remarks from the Fyrefly team: Dr. Glynnis Lieb (Executive Director), Evan Westfal (Programs Manager), Rae Madge (Where the Rivers Meet Program Coordinator), Tay Lamoureux (Camp Fyrefly Coordinator). Yasmine Abdel Razek (Fyrefly's Communications and Events Coordinator), will be MC'ing! 

Purchase tickets now to support Fyrefly and to continue creating a future where our 2SLGBTQ+ community is free from discrimination. 

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
