Happy Pride Month

People who are two-spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and gender-diverse contribute greatly to all facets of our community, but continue to fight for acceptance and equality in our society.

Pride Month is an opportunity to celebrate the progress made to recognize and protect the rights of LGBTQ2S+ communities and to reflect on the work that still needs to be done.
