An organizer with Regina’s Pride parade says she was surprised to get an application from the governing Saskatchewan Party asking to take part in the event next month. Riviera Bonneau, co-chair for Queen City Pride, says it was hard to understand why some legislature members would want to march in the parade, when their actions over the last year contradict support for the LGBTQ+ community. “We all felt a little frustrated and confused and a little ick about it,” Bonneau said Monday. “You can’t pretend you’re our ally, join our parade and do this whole thing while actively hurting members of our community.”
