Pride at the University
June is Pride month
Pride month was established in honour of the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in New York. Throughout the month, university community members are invited to participate in events that honour, celebrate, and affirm the dignity, equality, and increased visibility for people of diverse sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions.
Complete the community check-in form
2SLGBTQ+ employees are invited to complete the check-in form following another year of Pride celebrations. The information you provide will help inform Positive Space’s plans for the upcoming year, and understand if and how the community network can best meet the needs of and support the 2SLGBTQ+ employee community at the university.
This survey is anonymous and will be active until August 9, 2021.
