9th Annual Pride Brunch

In Support of Camp fYrefly

Join us for everyone’s favourite Pride brunch tradition – from home OR in person!

After careful consideration, we are delighted to bring Calgarians a hybrid event this year! We understand there is an array of comfort among our community and we will carefully monitor the COVID situation and make any necessary changes for the safety of all guests.

Choose your Pride Brunch package and support Camp fYrefly with whatever option you choose:

Online Brunch (Zoom): Enjoy a delicious local brunch and experience heartwarming camp stories and moving performances in the comfort of your own home. Gather a small group of friends or family and create your own Pride party! Pick up a delicious local brunch from Winebar or Yellow Door Bistro and bring it home, then log in to Zoom and watch the program.

Check out the menus for pick up HERE.

In-Person VIP (Hotel Arts): Miss seeing people? Us too! That’s why we’re selling a limited number of VIP tickets to attend brunch in person at Hotel Arts. Dine on a plated brunch meal and visit with friends and acquaintances while enjoying youth performances, heartwarming camp stories and more.

Online Only: Can’t pick up brunch that morning? Don’t live in Calgary? You can still join us! Choose the online-only ticket option – we’d love to see you there.


Of course, it wouldn’t be Pride Brunch without champagne! Thanks to Pacific Wine and Spirits, you can order a bottle of Taittinger Champagne and proceeds will go to Camp fYrefly. Champagne is available for brunch pick-up or pre-ordered for your in-person table!

Every party needs decorations, and Pride Boxes are back! Show your support for Pride by decking out your home. Add on a Pride Box to your ticket order to receive an exclusive box of Pride goodies - the proceeds go to the Centre's 2S/LGBTQ+ programs!

You can also support Camp fYrefly by participating in our Pride Brunch 50/50 Raffle! Get your tickets here: https://www.rafflebox.ca/raffle/centreforsexuality

Camp fYrefly

Centre for Sexuality has proudly hosted Southern Alberta’s Camp fYrefly since 2013. Camp is an important way for 2S/LGBTQ+ youth to find a supportive community and mentors, and enjoy activities and workshops. Pride Brunch is an opportunity to support these youth, and ensure no one is turned away due to cost.

Many youth may be living in unsupportive or even unsafe environments during the pandemic, and are missing their communities. We were grateful to provide online camp and day camp activities this summer, and provide critical connections and mental health support (as well as a lot of fun and laughter!).
