What is Mad Pride Hamilton? Mad Pride Hamilton is an annual madness arts, culture, and heritage celebration organized by self-identified Mad people for members of the local consumer/survivor/Mad community. We have a right to be proud of our survival, experiences, ideas, identities, creativity, accomplishments, contributions, and communities – just like everyone else. Mad Pride has been celebrated internationally for over 20 years and in Hamilton since 2013. Mad Pride Hamilton also publishes a magazine called This Insane Life.
