Happy Pride!
Since its inception following the Stonewall Riots in 1969, Pride has always been more than a celebration. Pride continues to be a demonstration that commemorates the pain and loss experienced by diverse members of the 2SLGBTQQIA+, and highlights the continued importance of resisting various forms of transphobia and homophobia.

On June 1, Durham College (DC) will partner with Ontario Tech University to host the inaugural raising of the Progressive Pride flag. The Progressive Pride flag is a visible symbol of DC’s support of all the 2SLGBTQQIA+ community while bringing to the forefront the intersectional experiences of racialized community members. This symbol signifies that all people are welcome and belong at DC.

We are also excited to announce the return of in-person Pride celebrations this year. Both institutions will host the first Pride Picnic, enabling us to re-connect, renew relationships and celebrate our 2SLGBTQQIA+ members and supporters. Share your Pride, and join us for an afternoon of great performances, food, and festivities.

When: Wednesday, June 1, 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.

Where: South Village Courtyard
