He Said, She Said, They Said: Gender Identity, Displayed Emotion, and Perceptions of Sexual Assault

Supervisor: Dr. Kristine Peace

Alex is in her fourth year of a BSc Honours major in Psychology. As a part of the queer community, she knows of countless queer folk who are survivors of sexual violence. Unfortunately, academia has yet to address these high rates of victimization meaningfully, as gender minorities are often left out of sexual violence research. Despite the relative newness of gender and sexual minority research in psychology, she believes that researchers have a responsibility to amplify the voices of the queer community to help increase understanding, intervention, and ideally prevention of sexual violence in these vulnerable communities.


We’re Queer and We’ve Always Been Here: The Impact of a Virtual Queer History Tour on 2SLGBTQ+ and Cisgender Heterosexual Young Adults in Alberta

Supervisors: Dr. Eric Legge, Dr. Kristopher Wells, Dr. Laura Offrey

Japkaran is a fifth-year Honours Psychology major. He is interested in the field of LGBT psychology and mental health among 2SLGBTQ+ young adults. Outside of academics, Japkaran is an avid pop-culture connoisseur and loves to create art in different mediums.


What Does Allyship to the LGBTQ+ Community Mean?

Supervisor: Dr. Laura Offrey

Noelle is in her fourth year as a Psychology major and a Gender Studies minor. She is an athlete on the MacEwan women’s basketball team and is originally from Calgary. She is thankful for the opportunity to research LGBTQ+ allyship as it encompasses her heart for social justice, her desire to understand privilege and dismantle oppression individually and systemically, and the practice of science.

This event is part of Pride Week 2023, where MacEwan University recognizes and celebrates the diversity of our 2SLGBTQ+ students, faculty, staff, and allies.

For over 40 years the 2SLGBTQ+ community in Edmonton has celebrated PRIDE during the month of June. This year will be no exception and like last year we will celebrate PRIDE MONTH from June 1st through to June 30th.

2022 saw over 40 events presented by more than 19 different producers and local businesses in 21+ different venues throughout the City of Edmonton and the Capital Region including St. Albert, Sherwood Park, Fort Saskatchewan, Leduc and Spruce Grove.

Here at Pride Edmonton our goal is to be one central source listing all Pride Events – from bars to performance venues, ballfields to community plaza’s, street fairs to churches – we will list all appropriate events.


Stay tuned as we ramp up our efforts. We will do our best to reach out to your organization if you presented an event in 2022. If you wish you may reach out to us in advance using our Contact page or use the Event Submission Form on the website so you can submit your info and graphic/poster now.

Pride in 2023

As many of the organizations, businesses and agencies get ready for an even bigger Pride celebration in 2023 we will be your first source for all events happening around Edmonton and its neighboring communities – St. Albert, Namao, Fort Saskatchewan, Sherwood Park, Beaumont, Nisku, Leduc, Devon and Spruce Grove.

We have added a form for you to submit your PRIDE event so we can add it to our Calendar. And we believe celebrating Pride should happen every day of the year feel free to send in your event even if it is not in June!
