Display Your Pride

Did you know that June is Pride Month? Join in the conversation and the celebrations with the entire U of T community on Thursday June 25th, as we host our first Display Your Pride Contest across all three campuses! We’re inviting you to show your creative flair and fabulous colours by decorating your office or student space in support of Pride.

Ryerson has been organizing this event annually for the past three years, with much success, and this year U of T decided to join in on the fun! It’s a great way to build awareness and create safer communities for LGBTQ communities across all three campuses.

Be sure to tweet your photos with the #DisplayYourPride hashtag and follow online. Details for each campus are listed below! Join in and have some fun, there are no limitations and no expectations – it’s your pride, your way! Ways to get involved can be anything from door decorating to dressing up, to creating a piece of artwork, to putting up colourful balloons or painting your face – anything goes!
