Sherbrooke’s annual Fière la Fête pride events came to a close on Saturday after a week of online and in-person activities celebrating and raising awareness around sexual and gender diversity in the city and across the Eastern Townships. Although the final organized activities of the week went well into the evening, Saturday afternoon’s diversity march from the Marché de la Gare to City Hall served as the last free, public event.
This year’s event involved pre-registration and had a cap of 500 participants in order to respect public health guidelines, but neither those restrictions nor the intermittent rain kept people from showing their colours and making themselves heard as they walked through the streets.
