This year we joined the city of Edmonton as we all went to "Dive into Pride"! Returning to Whyte Avenue our friends at Pride Festival really put on an epic event! HIV Edmonton brought out our Heroes for Zero to show our support for this annual festival that showcases the unity and diversity of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans-identified and queer community. All dressed in our Heroes for Zero garb and handing out our red beads we had a marvelous time! This year we were joined by Go Mazda who gave us some very superhero sports cars to really show our pride!
Congratulations to Dylan Chevalier to whom we were honoured to present the HIV Edmonton Youth Leadership Award at the Pride Awards. This is awarded to a youth or young adult who has worked diligently within the LGBTQ community to promote awareness and support. We presented Dylan with a $500 education bursary as part of this award.
