Pride Flag Raising at UTSC
Join us for a special presentation, activities and cupcakes to celebrate the raising of the Pride flags.
Date: Thursday, June 1, 2023
Location: Arts & Administration (AA) Building, UTSC (between AA and Student Centre). In the case of rain or inclement weather, we will move the celebration inside to AA112.
For the fifth year, UTSC is proud to raise the More Colour, More Pride flag, in addition to the Trans Pride flag, for the month of June. This gesture honours the diversity, resilience, and importance of queer communities on our campus and beyond.
Opening remarks will be shared by Nadia Rosemond, Assistant Dean, Cocurricular Programs and Student Leadership. In addition, we will have Pride cupcakes by Sweetflour Bakeshop, and we will have the chance to co-create a flower mural wall to celebrate and honour the importance of Pride.
Pride month is an opportunity to acknowledge the resilience, diversity and history of 2SLGBTQ+ communities. For the fifth year, UTSC will be raising the More Colour, More Pride flag. This flag features the Pride colours to honour the experiences and resilience of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT+) people. The addition of black and brown stripes to center the experiences of Black, Indigenous and racialized people in the 2SLGBTQ+* community. This flag is an affirmation of UTSC’s commitment to being intentionally inclusive and representing more voices and experiences in the 2SLGBTQ+ community. Additionally, we raise the Trans Pride flag to represent 2-spirit, trans, non-binary, and gender non-conforming people.
