This year, Fierté Montréal's Pride Week theme is "Together for All" with the aim of "focusing all the attention on the voices and opinions of our sexually and gender diverse communities so that their demands may be highlighted in a context where because of the pandemic, they had recently been made close to invisible."
Between all the unique pre-recorded shows being broadcasted at Parc olympique to the 2021 Pride March, it's sure to be an unforgettable week.

The pre-recorded show hosted by Christopher Marlot will be full of local artists like Tamara Weber, Lonely Boy, Magbeta, Redgee, Barb Tarbox, Zaya Solange, and Hua Li. The night will end with a virtual performance by DJ Crème Brulée.
