Camrose Pride Community
invites you to share

Moments of Pride

Yearly Pride Events commemorate the pivotal 1969 Stonewall Inn Riots, often seen as the spark for LGBTQIA2+ rights movements in North America. The fight for our communities’ rights continues to this day, and the sacrifices of those that came before us allow us to live our lives with Moments of Pride.

While we are not able to gather to celebrate our identities and our histories in person, Camrose Pride Community would like to invite you to share Moments of Pride in your life. Moments of Pride is a month long community driven event that sees LGBTQIA2+ peoples and our allies share our pride through the power of art.

What is Pride? What is your story?

We would like to ask our community for video submissions showcasing Moments of Pride, be they stories, poems, paintings, drag tutorials, dances, sports showcases, gardening suggestions, musical numbers or absolutely anything that showcases one’s pride to be an LGBTQIA2+ person or ally.

These videos will be posted on the Camrose Pride Community Facebook page every Friday in June to share our experiences, our journeys, our triumphs, and our Moments of Pride with the world.

If you are interested in taking part, please create a 3-5 minute video exploring the theme of Moments of Pride and share it via Google Drive or published YouTube link with Please include a short description of the video to be included with the video. Please also attach a signed Photo-Video-Audio Release Form, allowing us permission to post the video.
