Montreal's Pride festival begins today.

Its program, which runs until Sunday, includes more than 70 activities.

In addition to its cultural and artistic aspects, the festival also has a community component.

Many free shows will be presented on stage at Place Emilie-Gamelin, Wednesday to Sunday.

Community Day is Saturday on Ste-Catherine street.

Sunday afternoon, a parade is scheduled on Rene-Levesque and Guy to Sanguinet.

Pride week festively emphasizes advancements made by the LGBT community, while raising awareness of various inequalities that persist in Montreal.

Last year, Pride Montreal attracted 462,560 participants.
