This summer, Rainbow Salad and the 2SLGBTQ+ Collaborative of Peel are hosting Peel Pride 2022 re:united. Re:united puts inclusion into action and will celebrate this incredible opportunity to finally gather together again after the pandemic. At this free event, guests will enjoy live entertainment, a scrumptious barbecue lunch, a variety of games and activities for all ages, and the togetherness of everyone in our community who wishes to celebrate their open and proud expressions of who they are.
