Happy Pride! Although we are not yet able to celebrate Pride month together in-person, we are proud to announce that the U of T community is offering a broad range of virtual programs. We hope you can join us!

The past year has been difficult as we navigate the pandemic during this Civil Rights moment. As we come together virtually, we want to remember that from its inception following the Stonewall Riots in 1969, Pride has always been more than a celebration: Pride commemorates pain and loss within LGBTQ2S+ communities, and it serves as a demonstration to highlight the continued importance of resisting homophobia and transphobia. And as we actively work against anti-LGBTQ2S+ violence and all forms of racism, it is vital that we also make space to nurture and to celebrate our communities, including our queer and trans Black, Indigenous and people of colour communities. At this time and at all times, LGBTQ2S+ liberation is intersectional.

We hope that you will join us for Pride events that celebrate our diverse LGBTQ2S+ communities. During these isolating and divisive times, let us come together to sustain our communities and celebrate each other and ourselves, with Pride. And we are looking forward to being together again under the sun one day soon.
