On Wednesday, June 22nd, Beanfield kicked off a brand-new tradition: the Pride Primer. It was fantastic to see our customers, employees and community members gather at The Bentway to celebrate Pride, with an evening full of food, drinks, drag and music.
While the sun set, the outdoor venue filled up, as our guests partied into the evening with amazing drag performances from local talent, as well as music by DJ Donovan, and Beanfield’s very own DJ Drew and DJ Dan (our CEO!).
The Bentway was bumpin’ from 7 to 11, and by the time the music stopped, the crowd was chanting for an encore. Unfortunately, we couldn’t oblige the encore that evening, since we follow a “good neighbour” noise policy, but we heard the message loud and clear! We are already looking forward to an even bigger, better Pride Primer next year.
For now, we want to thank everybody who came out to support our 2SLGBTQ+ community and celebrate inclusion and diversity. Pride is our chance to celebrate our differences and work together to show that we are all united in our humanity. This event was an example of just how beautiful that unity can be.
So, from all of us here at Beanfield, Happy Pride. We can’t wait to see you next year.
