The ArQuives is happy to announce that Pride Toronto has jointly selected The ArQuives and Breakaway Community Services as their prestigious Honoured Groups and Charities of Choice for the 2021 Phygital Festival!
Honoured Groups + Charities of Choice
The honourees were selected in recognition of their leadership and achievements in the 2SLGBTQ+ community. They were chosen based on their incredible contributions and the important services offered. Pride Toronto will be recognizing both honourees throughout the 2021 Festival programming as well as extending any additional fundraising opportunities available.
“This year’s Honoured Groups truly reflect the 2021 Festival. We will be recognizing the history of Pride Toronto as well as the current complex environment in which we find ourselves in 2021. These two components have been incorporated in both our creative direction as well as in our Festival programming.” says Sherwin Modeste, Executive Director of Pride Toronto.“We look forward to recognizing the important contributions of both The ArQuives and Breakaway Community Services throughout 2021.”
Modeste calls attention to the history at the heart of our communities: “The ArQuives is the place to go to learn about some incredible LGBTQ2+ history during Pride, as well as year-round. I especially encourage anyone interested in LGBTQ2+ history to visit ArQuives.ca and head to the Digital Exhibits section, where you’ll find stories reflective of our incredibly vibrant and resilient communities.”
