From all of us at Canna Cabana: Happy Pride!
It's the most colourful time of the year! 🏳️🌈
All across the country, we're showing our colours and showing up for LGBTQ+ people everywhere. With the summer sun bright in the sky, our cities and social medias dripping with rainbows, and our friends back with us again, this year's Pride finally feels like it should.
This year, we're grateful for our community in so many ways. From digital town halls to mental health hotlines to community support fundraisers, LGBTQ+ Canadians reached out to each other in the most difficult of times. The show of strength, togetherness, and love in our communities was a shining ray of light, and now that the clouds of the past few, isolated Prides are parting, we're saying a big thank you.
Thank you to all of our LGBTQ+ creators, singers, artists, educators, and political voices. Thank you to those who show us, and all young LGBTQ+ people who look to you for guidance, what it is like to live out, proud, and happy. Thank you to everyone who shows us the strength and fierce pride of our communities. Thank you to you.
To all of our LGBTQ+ team members, to all the wonderful people we interact with every day, we wish you the happiest Pride.

- Learn LGBTQ+ history through documentaries like Paris is Burning
- Host a dinner or movie night with your family and friends and watch new and classic heart-warming LGBTQ+ movies and TV shows like Heartstopper, The Happiest Season, But I'm a Cheerleader, and the little-known (but delightful) Big Eden
However you choose to celebrate, we hope it's filled with warmth, laughter, and love!
