What: Mad Pride Week is an arts, culture, and heritage festival created to celebrate, empower and build community! We tackle tough topics with Mad tenacity. We share messages of beauty and hilarity through Mad arts. We march in the Bed-Push Parade to show our commitment to activism and to acknowledge our historical strength as a community.
Mad? We reclaim the word “mad” and show our power to define ourselves. Mad is a political tool to include rather than exclude (consumer survivors, people with lived experience, mentally ill, crazy, people with mental health issues, and people with diagnoses and “normals’). EVERYONE IS WELCOME!
Highlights: Mad Hatter Street Fair & Market, Bed Push Parade, MADx and SOS music and comedy night parties, a panel discussions on anti- Black Sanism, a discussion on peer supporters, meditation,Tai Chi, and The Friendly Spike Theatre Band! And More! And You!
