Who is PQP?

We are a group of creative queers living on and around the South Shore of Mi’kma’ki/Nova Scotia. 

What does PQP do?

We organize queer-centred social events and fundraise for local projects that directly support local queers and communities in Lunenburg County. We are collaborating with the Lunenburg Foundation for the Arts (LFA) to create Clams—a new grant launching this year specifically for 2SLGBTQIA+ artists based on the South Shore. Applications due May 31st!

What does PQP have to do with the Lunenburg Foundation for the Arts (LFA)?

The LFA is a volunteer-led registered charity that provides annual grants and bursaries to artists from all disciplines in Lunenburg County. PQP collaborated with the LFA to establish the Petite Queer Pride Program which raises funds specifically for Clams—a new 2SLGBTQIA+ artist grant.

How will my money support Petite Queer Pride?

Donations to PQP will be used to cover our event production expenses (venue and equipment rental fees + associated costs, promo materials, etc). Surplus funds will be invested in Clams—a new grant specifically for 2SLGBTQIA+ artists that launched in May 2024 in collaboration with the Lunenburg Foundation for the Arts. 

Where are PQP events taking place this year?

PQP 2024 is happening at the Broad Cove Hall! Grab an advance ticket here.

How long have you been operating?

Petite Queer Pride was established in 2022 by a group of queer-identified volunteers based in the Petite Rivière, Dublin Shore and LaHave area of Kespukwitk/Southwest Nova Scotia.

Are you a registered charity/not-for-profit organization?

Nope, but in 2023 we created the Petite Queer Pride Program with local registered charity the Lunenburg Foundation for the Arts (LFA) and can now receive donations and issue tax receipts when applicable. Donate now.

I have a question!
