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 Keele and Glendon campuses. The official Glendon campus Flag Drop Ceremony takes place at the Skyroom, A300 York Hall, on Tuesday, June 24 at 1pm. Join us for cake and presentations by: Kenneth McRoberts, principal, Glendon; Noël Badiou, director, CHR; and Aleksandar Golijanin, head coordinator, GLgbt*.
