Happy Pride month everyone!
First of all, thank you so much to everybody that attended Identity, Migration & Policies: Journeys of LGBTQ+ Newcomers. The event was a success! We had really good feedback based on the evaluation forms that people filled out after the event. It was a wonderful opportunity to talk about LGBTQ+ newcomer issues and to network with other service providers across Toronto. Many people said that these kinds of forums and events are necessary because LGBTQ+ newcomers are very much under represented and not talked about enough in the mainstream LGBTQ discussions. So thank you everyone for coming!
So it's that time of the year again! Everybody around the world is celebrating PRIDE! June is considered by many as Pride Month. Across Canada, Pride celebrations are held to celebrate the diversity of the LGBTTQQI2SAA+ community.
Are you attending any Pride celebrations? Please let us know! We know that the Annual Pride Parade here in Toronto is this Sunday, July 1 from 2 pm but we want to know what's happening across Ontario too! (or across Canada). Tweet your Pride events to us: @ocasi_psi or share it on our facebook.com/PositiveSpacesInitiative page. We would love to hear from you. :)
Anyway, that's about it for now. We will be posting our June updates soon.
Happy Pride everyone!
