It's been a wild two COVID years for Halifax Pride—in 2020 the festival snuck in its event during a restriction-light July; for 2021 the event moved back a whole month in the hopes of clearing the bar fully. Things will look a little different—smaller—again this year on the Garrison Grounds, but the lineup is robust, diverse, and all-ages. Executive director Adam Reid stops by for a year-by-year comparison and how the pandemic pushed the organization toward a more "thoughtful" event. Plus a brand-new song from Tara's former students in Kids Losing Sleep!
