Once again, Fernie’s most fabulous Drag Queens and Kings hit the slopes to shine a rhinestoned spotlight on suicide in the Elk Valley. Last year, with the support of the Fernie Alpine Resort and Fernie PRIDE, our Drag Stars raised over $10,000 for the Elk Valley Suicide Task Force to create a Grief Support for friends and families dealing in the wake of suicide.

Learning; a simple verb that is often taken for granted. This seemingly basic verb is a lifelong and intentional action that goes hand-in-hand with allyship. Fernie Pride Society is fortunate to work with many dedicated educators in the Elk Valley and to continue collaborations with community organizations to ensure that inclusive and diverse learning opportunities are available for people in all stages of life.

As of August 25th, this event will go ahead with modifications. Attendance is capped at a maximum of 100 people present at any given time in line with new provincial health orders. Organisers will manage attendance. Please follow instructions and signage to help keep everyone safe and ensure that this event can go ahead. 

The Fernie Pride Society is seeking input from workers and residents in the Elk Valley as part of their efforts to build diversity and inclusion; particularly for those who identify as LGBTQ2+ or who may be questioning their sexual orientation and gender identity. Input is being collected through a confidential online survey open to everyone, including allies such as employers, family members, friends, coworkers, educators, and healthcare professionals.
