Country: Canada, France, 80 mins

  • Director: Darrin Hagen

CGiii Comment

Delwin Vriend never wanted to be a human rights activist. However, in challenging his firing for being gay, he set in motion a chain of events that impacted the lives of LGBTQ+ people —not just in Alberta, not just in Canada, but around the globe.

Pride vs. Prejudice: The Delwin Vriend Story delves into the riveting narrative of the Vriend v. Alberta case, where Delwin Vriend, an unlikely hero, courageously battles against discrimination from a government determined to deny his human rights. Uncover the twists and turns that unfold as Vriend's pursuit of justice challenges societal biases, culminating in a ground-breaking Canadian Supreme Court ruling in 1998 that confronts prejudice and sets a transformative precedent for LGBTQ+ rights that is cited around the world.
