"CURED" Documentary Film Screening
Homosexuals were deviants and homosexuality was a mental illness to be “cured” until LGBTQ+ activists fought the Establishment—and won
Watch the trailer here.

These were among the terms psychiatrists used to describe lesbians and gay men in the 1950s, 1960s, and early 1970s. According to the medical establishment, every gay person – no matter how well-adjusted – suffered from a mental disorder. And as long as lesbians and gay men were “sick,” progress toward equality was impossible.

CURED chronicles the battle waged by activists who declared war against a formidable institution—and won a crucial victory in the modern movement for LGBTQ equality. The documentary takes viewers inside the David-versus-Goliath struggle that led the American Psychiatric Association (APA) to remove homosexuality from its diagnostic manual of mental illnesses in 1973. The film illuminates the strategy and tactics that led to this pivotal yet largely unknown moment in history.

2SLGBTQIA+ Families: Panel Discussion
Join the YWCA Regina Advocacy Committee and Saskatchewan Federation of Labour for a panel discussion with members of Regina’s 2SLGBTQIA+ community and their families!

This panel discussion, moderated by Tara Molson (she/her) of YWCA Regina will feature many diverse voices from our community.

Tune in to hear from family members about their experiences in navigating available supports and finding their place in the 2SLGBTQIA+ community in Saskatchewan. In 2021, families do not look like they did on misrepresentative and dated images of the “nuclear family” seen in the past: chosen families, diverse families, and gender and sexually diverse families are vibrant parts of our community, and when our communities are diverse, acceptance and care flourish!

Hearing from these families and learning their personal experiences builds all our awareness and acceptance.

Stay tuned to the event page for details about our panellists and for the zoom link!

Regina Word Up Pride Stage feat. MelVee X
Our annual Regina Word Up Pride Stage is an opportunity to share your work with an appreciative crowd. For this event, we prioritize and centre queer expression on this stage: we encourage sharing queer content or any content for folks who identify as 2SLGBTQ+. Everyone is welcome in the audience!

Each performer receives 5 minutes to share their work, ending at 8 p.m. We appreciate audience members to be encouraging and excited -- snap your fingers, type into the chat, shout to your delight (because you'll be muted during the performance!)

The Pride Stage opens the night followed by a feature performance by MelVee X. This event will not be recorded.

We suggest signing up in advance by sending us a message to secure a performance spot. Space permitting, you may sign up by messaging the Zoom host when you arrive.

FEATURE ARTIST: MelVee X

MelVee X (she/they) is a self-taught Black queer multidisciplinary artist and CEO of MVX STUDIOS - a hub for equitable creative and artistic expression based in Calgary, AB. Her primary means of expression are spoken word poetry, burlesque performance and photography - the MelVee trifecta.

She's been a professional artist for over five years and her work has been featured locally and nationally. It is MelVee's vision and guiding principle to empower equity and justice-seeking communities to tell our own stories from our perspectives. She is proudly Black and celebrates her Afro-Caribbean roots in her work. The struggle is real, unapologetic and never looked so good.

GUIDELINES, COMMUNITY AGREEMENTS AND CONSENT STATEMENTS

At the Creative City Centre we always strive for inclusivity and respect in the community both inside and out of our facility, which is why we have compiled the following guidelines to remember both for our events and also in everyday life.
• We encourage respecting the way folks self-identify, without assuming gender, sexuality, orientation, religion, or ability.
• We understand that at times folks may need to leave or engage in other methods of self-care, and that’s okay.
• We encourage language that promotes inclusivity, education, and awareness and dislike all forms of explicit ignorance including, but not limited to, hate speech, racism, homophobia, transphobia, and classism.
• We encourage the culture of consent meaning we respect people’s physical, verbal, and emotional boundaries. This means respecting that some people might not want to be hugged and if you want to engage physically in any way with a person it is important to ask permission before doing so.

Queen City Pride Parade
❤️ The annual Queen City Pride Parade is our signature event that fills Regina with rainbows, smiles, and pride. The Pride Parade has since grown to become one of Regina’s most colourful and recognized parades.

🧡 This year, we're hosting a "hybrid" Pride Parade. With gathering restrictions still in place, we can't invite everyone to join in for a physical parade. Our solution is to mix our physical and virtual worlds together so we can still have a symbolic physical parade while allowing everyone to take part in the parade virtually with video entries.

💚 Video Parade Entries
- Submit a 30-45 second Video Parade Entry to be included in this year's Pride Parade. Then, tune into the live broadcast of the parade to watch the hybrid Pride Parade where we mix it all together with the physical parade! Visit our website to learn more about submitting your entry: https://queencitypride.ca/pride-parade/

💙 Vehicle Parade Entries
- Applications for Vehicle Parade entries will not be accepted this year. With limited space for a physical parade, we've chosen to feature a "community showcase". A special committee was formed to help decide which groups will form this showcase. If you have any questions, please email hello@queencitypride.ca.

💜 Watching the Parade
- You can watch the "Vehicle Parade" by going to any point along the Pride Parade Route and watching as the floats and vehicles drive by!
- You can watch the "Hybrid Parade" which includes live coverage of the vehicle parade mixed with video entries. You can tune in on AccessNow TV (Access channel 7, HD 507, or the AccessNow App) or stream from YouTube by visiting https://www.myaccess.ca/queencitypride

=====
🛑 COVID-19 Guidelines for Pride
Guidelines exist for both parade participants and spectators. Please visit https://qcpri.de/covid-19-policies to view our policies and procedures.

Ally Blood Donation Clinic
Blood donations play an essential role in saving lives every day.

However, despite always being in demand, men who have sex with other men (MSM) and trans women who have not undergone gender-affirming surgery and who have sex with other trans women or men, who would otherwise be qualified to donate, are prevented from contributing to Canada’s blood supply.

As of 2019, the exclusion period for MSMs, which also affects trans women and some non-binary people, was reduced to three months, down from one year.

The Ally Blood Donation Clinic is our way to draw attention to the issues while still encouraging people to donate blood. The work that CBS performs is essential for our healthcare system, but that doesn't mean our community shouldn't advocate for evidence-based screening criteria that don't discriminate or exclude people based on their sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.

Sign up an ally to donate on your behalf. Let's bring an end to the ban on blood donations.

Sign Up for an Appointment: http://blood.ca/queencitypride
We have 31 blood donation appointments for anyone who is able/willing to donate blood please follow the link.
