Who we are

In 2015 the Oxford Pride Committee evolved from the Oxford County Rainbow Coalition . The Oxford County Pride Committee is comprised of 2SLGBTQIA+ community members and allies. The objective of our committee is to develop an artistic and cultural Pride celebration. We recognize diversity of gender throughout Oxford County. In doing so, the Pride Committee highlights organizations, business’, services and opportunities that support and promote positive outcomes for the 2SLGBTQIA+ community and Allies

Our Mission

The mission of the Oxford County Pride Committee is to make Oxford County inclusive, diverse and safe for the 2SLGBTQIA+ individuals within our community. Through education and advocacy our goal is to dispel and eliminate cissexism and heterosexism creating a safer and more inclusive community in which to live or visit.
