Advertise in the Pride Guide

Get noticed & show your support in the 2018 Pride Guide!


The Pride Guide is Pride London Festival’s official event program & includes a full listing of Pride events, community resources & parade information.


The guide offers businesses a chance to advertise directly to the growing LGBT2Q communities, as well as their friends, family & allies. Not only is it a great marketing opportunity, but also a chance to let Londoners know that you support the positive social change that Pride stands for.


More than 7,500 copies of the guide will be printed & distributed, & will be available at PrideLondon.ca/PrideGuide.


Studies have shown that 30% of the LGBTTQ* market’s purchasing decisions are influenced by advertising, over 50% are influenced
by a company’s employment practices and active promotion of LGBTTQ*-friendly policies.
