INTRODUCING PRIDE+

A call to make positive connections with others

Fido, a long-standing ally of the 2SLGBTQ+ community, always aims to move the conversation forward, boldly striving to set a standard that others measure themselves against. In that pursuit, PRIDE+ is taking the conversation to the next level. PRIDE+ is positive, inclusive and expansive. It goes beyond acceptance. It’s a platform that helps people add stories, resources and support – because adding is connecting.

HERE TOGETHER BOOTH

Fido knows that staying connected is important, so in celebration of Pride throughout the summer, Fido is going to help the 2SLGBTQ+ community and all Canadians connect with their friends, family and chosen families through a speakers-corner-style activation at three of Canada’s largest Pride celebrations.

At the Here Together booth, you can take share-worthy selfies before stepping into the recording booth to make a lively 30-second video that is uniquely yours. You will have the opportunity to create, capture and share a special moment and message to help spread love and positivity across Canada.
