Steinbach’s third Pride parade will march tomorrow.

Pride is an event that celebrates and brings together the LGBTQ community and its allies. This year’s theme is "Common Ground."

"There aren’t that many differences between us and them," said Chris Plett, organizer of Steinbach Pride.

Plett said he sees the event as an opportunity to make a level playing field to educate, open hearts and minds, and to build relationships between members of the LGBTQ community and the community at large.

Pride begins at 11 a.m. at K.R. Barkman Park. Shandi Strong, author of Growing a Pair, will speak, as well as Muhammed Ahsan of the Rainbow Resource Centre, Pearl Barz from Steinbach Neighbors for Community, and Plett.

The march sets out at approximately 11:45 a.m and will travel down Main Street to Reimer Avenue, before circling back to the park via Elmdale Street.

Plett said food trucks will be on site to feed the hungry marchers. Booths from Rainbow Resource Centre and Sexuality Education Resource Centre will be on hand to chat with participants.
