The Rady JCC float in the 2017 Pride Parade - voted "Best Overall Float"

In June, 2017, members of the Jewish community participated with a float in the annual Pride Parade and were recognized as “Best Overall Float” for the 2017 event.

Over 70 members of the Jewish community members, allies and friends celebrated together with a lively and fun float.

This year’s  Pride Winnipeg Festival will run from May 25 - June 3, 2018 and consists of an array of cultural events that celebrate the incredibly diverse community that supports or identifies with gay, lesbian, transsexual, transgender, intersex, two-spirit, and queer people.
 
Everyone is invited to celebrate and support Pride. This year’s Pride Parade will be taking place on Sunday, June 3 with a float with members of the Jewish LGBTQ community of Winnipeg. Members of the Rady Jewish Community Centre’s sponsored groups Anakhnu and Chofshi and other organizations and volunteers have been meeting for a few weeks to plan out the float for 2018.  In addition to the Rady JCC, several other community organizations including, Jewish Federation of Winnipeg, CIJA, BBYO, Gray Academy, B’TLV, Chevra Mishnayes, BBYO and Camp Massad have indicated their participation in Pride 2018.

The Rady JCC would like to invite Jewish LGBTQ individuals, family members, allies, and other Jewish organizations to join together to experience Pride 2018.  We are looking for volunteers in a variety of areas including Parade Marshals, Décor, Float Set-Up/Tear-Down.
