Every year, the artists and businesses in Winnipeg and Manitoba show their solidarity with 2SLGBTQ+ communities by running amazing promotions through Pride season. All of us at Rainbow say Thank You!
The money raised supports our programming and services all year long, ensuring we can be a safe space and reliable resource for the thousands of people who access us every year.
This Pride season, check in regularly to see how you can shop and support Rainbow Resource Centre.
