On June 22, 2019, the city of Morden saw its first ever Pride Parade. This was a huge accomplishment in an area that had never seen anything like it before.
The COVID-19 Pandemic changed our ability to gather as a group in the years since then, but we still did our best to spread some rainbows throughout the communities in the Pembina Valley with online events.
We are so excited to be having our first event as Pembina Valley Pride on June 11, 2022 in Altona! For more information, check out our calendar. If you want to help get the word out, download our posters to hang up in your community.
We can’t wait to see you!
We serve all communities in the Pembina Valley, large, small, and in between. Whether you just moved here, you’ve lived here all your life, or you’re otherwise connected, know that we are working to provide a safe space for all. Please note that this list does not include every community we serve.
Not everyone in our communities is safe to come out publicly, even today. Just being a part of an organization like Pembina Valley Pride can be dangerous when surrounded by hateful people. We recognize that it is a privilege to be able to declare one’s affiliations with 2SLGBTQIANB+ rights in the Pembina Valley and not suffer negative consequences for it. We also recognize that it can be incredibly empowering to see members of your community vocally support the cause of Pride. With that in mind, we would like to introduce a few of our board members who are able to share a bit about themselves.
Peter Wohlgemut is the President of Pembina Valley Pride and has been involved with the organization since 2019. They identify as Queer and use “they, their, them” pronouns. Peter has lived in and around Altona with their spouse for most of their adult life which is also where they raised their family. They enjoy gardening, quilting and reading when they’re not in the classroom teaching, where they are known as “Mx W.”.
Kathryn is a Chairperson of Pembina Valley Pride and has been involved with the organization since 2019. She’s a bisexual woman who lives with her husband & two kids. She has two dogs and three cats. She’s passionate about digital media & music production and spends her free time listening to podcasts.
