To our Halifax 2SLGBTQ+ community:

Halifax Pride has taken your concerns about Trixie Mattel’s previous comedy sketch very seriously - this is a regrettable situation. 

Upon receiving the complaint, we immediately reached out to our partners, including those in the Jewish community, for guidance. We also reached out to the artist and have received confirmation that this particular act will not be part of January’s Laugh-and-a-Half event. 

Halifax Pride is committed to creating spaces and opportunities that are safe, inclusive, and respectful to all communities. We look forward to presenting a comedy performance from Trixie Mattel and other performers that is reflective of these values.
