Oxford Pride Committee

Annual General Meeting (AGM)

Oxford county Pride would like to invite you to join us for our annual general meeting. Here you will learn more about us, can ask questions about our committee and learn how you can become more involved on the committee and within the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. This is the only time of year you can become a member of this committee.

Oxford County Pride is proud to announce that Fae Johnstone will be virtually joining our Annual General Meeting as our special guest speaker on October 19th, 2023.

Fae Johnstone is a trailblazing trans woman, queer advocate and small business owner. She is a sought-after speaker, trainer and writer on 2SLGBTQIA+ inclusion in Canada. She is a co-owner and Executive Director of Wisdom2Action – a national consulting firm specializing in community engagement, organizational development and 2SLGBTQIA+ inclusion, and President of the Society of Queer Momentum – a national 2SLGBTQIA+ advocacy organization.

She is a leading advocate for queer and trans communities, rights, health and safety in Canada. For 10 years, she has challenged Canadian governments to advance systemic change for 2SLGBTQ+ communities. She regularly writes op-eds, mobilizes partners organizations on advocacy issues, comments on 2SLGBTQIA+ issues in the media, and engages with elected officials to galvanize action on queer and trans rights.

Fae was named an “Emerging Social Impact Leader” by The Peak, a “Top 30 Social Purpose Newsmaker” by Future of Good, “One of Ten Spectacular Canadian Women to Watch” by Notable Life, and was the 2016 recipient of LGBT Youth Line’s Trans Activist Award. She is the first trans woman to serve on the Board of Directors of YWCA Canada and Oxfam Canada. She’s also on a chocolate bar.

If you are interested in being part of “Oxford county Pride” and want to help provide events throughout the year including our annual “Oxford County Pride Family Day”, plan to attend this important meeting.

Community Grant Recipient

We are proud to be one of the eleven recipients of the fall intake of the Community Grants Program approved by Woodstock City Council.

Eleven non-profit charities and organizations will receive a combined total of $41,000 this time around. 

The funds will go towards the purchase of more Pride banners which will be hung in Woodstock, Ingersoll, Tillsonburg, and Norwich during the month of June, also known as Pride Month.

The money distributed through the Community Grants Program comes from the slot revenues the city receives from the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation, for hosting Gateway Casinos. The city distributes two rounds of community grants each year, one in the spring and another in the fall.
Local charities and non-profits who would like to receive funding from the upcoming spring intake of the program have until March 1st at 4:30 p.m. to submit an application form.
