Our code of ethics

The Bay of Quinte Pride committee operates under the guidelines of PRIDE: Professionalism, Respect, Integrity, Diversity and Excellence.


We will strive for excellence in all endeavors, ensuring that our work benefits the community. We will interact respectfully with colleagues, community members, and partners. We are stronger together.


We will treat others as we wish to be treated. We will show kindness, empathy, and understanding. We will create an environment where everyone feels valued, regardless of their background or identity.


We will always do the right thing, even when no one is watching. Upholding ethical standards is our guiding principle, not a performative act. We will be transparent, genuine, and fair in all our interactions.


We appreciate and honor the unique perspectives, experiences, and identities within our community. We will ensure equal opportunities for all, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, or abilities.


We will always strive for the best. We will pursue excellence in all programs, events, and initiatives. We will stay informed: we constantly adapt and evolve to better serve the LGBTQ2S+ community.

Our Mission:

Bay of Quinte Pride provides opportunities to celebrate gender and sexual diversity across the Bay of Quinte region. As a committee, we advocate on behalf of our LGBTQ2S+ family and collaborate with the broader community to foster an inclusive and accepting place for us all.
