Event Description

Mad Pride is an arts, culture, and heritage festival created by psychiatric survivors, consumers, mad people, folks the world has labelled “mentally ill”, and those in solidarity with us.

Mad Pride is about:
• remembering and participating in mad history
• challenging discrimination
• advocating for rights
• affirming mad identities
• developing and empowering mad communities
• having fun!

Our lives and contributions are valuable and need celebration!

All events are free. Festivities include educational talks/panels, theatre, music, art, poetry, comedy, films, craft/vendor sales, information booths, mad hatter tea parties and more.

There will be a Bed Push Parade from 1001 Queen Street West (CAMH) to 1499 Queen Street West (PARC) starting at noon on Saturday, July 14. This parade signifies our escape from asylums back into the community.
