Central Alberta Pride Society was founded in 2012 to bring LGBTQ+ awareness and community to Red Deer and surrounding areas. The name was intentionally chosen to be inclusive of urban and rural areas surrounding Red Deer, recognizing that LGBTQ+ people exist beyond city limits.
Central Alberta Pride Society organizes events, most of them family friendly, to welcome members of our community as well as friends, family, and allies to participate in fun, social activities and to foster a sense of pride and community in Central Alberta.
Our mission is to strengthen our community and cultivate social change through support, awareness and education.
Our vision is a safe community that values, embraces and celebrates Central Alberta’s diversity.
