York@WorldPride June 20 to 29
This year, Toronto celebrates with the world! One of the largest international events, WorldPride is a celebration of the history, courage and future of the LGBTQ+* communities. It unites us to rejoice in everything that we are and all that we can be.
York@WorldPride invites you to connect with the spirit of Pride and rise up in solidarity with queer communities and their accomplices. Together we will showcase the acceptance, diversity and inclusivity that York promotes while welcoming individuality. The Art Gallery of York University (AGYU), Centre for Human Rights (CHR), York Federation of Students (YFS), Trans, Bi, Lesbian and Gay Allies at York (TBLGAY), Glendon Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender (GLgbt*) and SexGen York committee want you to share your true colours and get involved with Toronto’s WorldPride Week and all of York’s multifaceted festivities.
Celebrate! The revelry begins with the opening ceremonies at the Keele and Glendon campuses. Pride kicks off on Keele campus in the Student Centre on Tuesday, June 24, from 10:30 to 11:30am. Enjoy delicious homemade cupcakes and fly your own flag with the following invited guests: Elliott Lee-Mook, internal coordinator, TBLGAY; Lee Iskander, external coordinator, TBLGAY; and Gayle McFadden, VP campaigns and advocacy, YFS, as they remark on their ongoing commitment to equity and safety of LGBTQ+ at York. An LGBTQ+BBQ will follow courtesy of YFS to help you relax and enjoy the summer heat.
