Fierté Timmins Pride 10th Anniversary
Fierté Timmins Pride (FTP), the only visible 2SLGBTQ+ presence within the Cochrane & Temiskaming Districts of Northeastern Ontario (the region), is a volunteer Board created to organize and support Pride events for the area. Since their founding in 2014, FTP has been called upon by community partners to provide training, services, and crisis support. Fierté Timmins Pride began in September 2014 with a small group of local organizers and three months of planning time. With over 300 people in attendance in the first Pride event in the region, it was an
outstanding success for a small community. Fierté Timmins Pride has grown over the past nine years, with a committee that has grown to a volunteer Board of Directors and is a registered not-for-profit organization.
