Who is Canadian Aviation Pride?

Canadian Aviation Pride is a group of LGBT Canadians and their allies who are involved or interested in aviation.
We provide events across Canada, whether you're a regular participant or just visiting. Our events are open to all levels of industry from enthusiasts to professions, from private aviation to student, commercial, military, maintenance, management, aviation support, and beyond.
There have always been gay pilots and aviators, it started out as a general network of pilots getting together for social events and pride.

Lately, there has been greater effort to help connect and network people in Aviation.

In 2013, a group of people decided to organize the group more and the name, 'Canadian Aviation Pride' came to be as an inclusive name covering all LGBT...Aviators. As CAP, we marched for the first time in the Toronto Pride Parade.
Great plans are afoot for the future.
