Halifax Pride announces new speakers series

My MCM Dylan Marron brings activism and satire to the fest.

Thanks @lukefontana & @tyleroakley.

Pride is back this July 20-30 with a lineup that goes heavy on drag and dance music. While a lot of longtime favourite events are returning (here’s looking at you, Dykes & Divas softball game), the biggest announcement is a new speakers series featuring 2SLGBTQ+ activists.

Topics like sexuality and race, trans healthcare and the impact of dating apps will all be discussed at various lectures: Names like Kamal Al-Solaylee (the author of Intolerable and former Globe & Mail columnist) and Pride Toronto’s executive director Olivia Nuahma stud the calendar with their credentials.

The best part for any secret Facebook addict, though, will be Dylan Marron’s July 25 evening slot. The former host of seriously.tv’s viral, leftie, satirical videos taking aim at topics like white feminism and transphobia will be chatting about activism and comedy.

Swoon with me over some of his best work, the faux-infomercial Unboxing with Dylan Marron series, below:
