    QueerEvents.ca - queer history - 1994 P.E.I first pride march for rights

    Gay and Lesbian Pride March took place on July 16, 1994, individuals took to the streets of Charlottetown to demand protection under the law and raise awareness.

    "I definitely had some trepidation and I think some of that was highlighted by the fact that we had people walking with bags over their head because they were terrified of being outed."
    Troy Perrot-Sanderson, organizer

    At one point, oranges were thrown at those in the march from behind a fence, some of which were simply gathered up by marchers who made smoothies with them later.

    The march was organized to help push for changes in the P.E.I. Human Rights Act to include sexual orientation.
