Capital Pride has a new program through which the organization forges partnerships in the broader community. On Aug 15, it teamed up with the Museum of Nature to run a special edition of Nature Nocturne, not usually held in summer, to kick off Pride. 

The museum was lit in purple, and a 60-foot Pride flag was hung across the back of the building, visible to everyone driving by on the highway. Inside, the program featured a preview of the Ottawa Burlesque Festival, drag kings and queens, collective crafts, DJs and more.
