June is International Pride Month. It is a time for the Two-Spirit, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Asexual/Aromantic + (2SLGBTQQIA+) community and their allies to come together and reflect on their journeys and celebrate their achievements.
Recent events show that as a community it is increasingly important, now more than ever, that we as a community and as individuals consider ways that we can work towards achieving inclusive and safe spaces for everyone. We need to demonstrate solidarity with the 2SLGBTQQIA+ community and continue to fight for equality, safety and the sense of belonging.
In August Ottawa will celebrate the Capital Pride Festival . This is another opportunity for all of us to come together to connect and celebrate the 2SLGBTQQIA+ community.
