ABOUT US

Founded: 2016

Diversity Cornwall is a non-profit organization founded to coordinate the annual Cornwall Pride Festival and other community events with the goal of fostering diversity, unity, and visibility.

We are using public awareness and education about the 2SLGBTQ+ community as a way to combat homophobia and discrimination.

OUR MISSION

Diversity Cornwall promotes equality and wellness for 2SLGBTQ+ individuals in the Stormont, Dundas, and Glengarry area through community events, education, and advocacy. The Organization serves the interests of the 2SLGBTQ+ community and allies.
