Time: 11:00 am
Info: Get your crayons, sharpen your colouring pencils, and sniff your fruity markers! Halifax Pride is hosting an online colouring session to mark the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia (IDAHTB). Halifax Pride is happy to contribute this event as part of a series of IDAHBT events by Haligonian 2SLGBTQ+ organizations. 

Halifax Pride has asked local 2SLGBTQ+ artists to create colouring pages inspired by IDHATB, the results are amazing, and we’re going to colour them together on Zoom!

Colouring pages can be downloaded for printing from the discussion area of the Facebook event. Pictures are provided in PDF format so they can be opened in your favourite colouring app and digitally coloured. Don’t have an app? Take a screenshot and use Markup. Hardcopies can also be delivered to those in the Halifax area if requested in the Google Form by May 15th.

Our wonderful contributing artists include:
