June is Pride month; a celebration of the significant impact that LGBTQ+ individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally. And what better way to celebrate than by honouring these achievements.
Pride is a testament of the power that individuals have in bringing about social change and is also a reminder of the struggles and sacrifices that have, and continue to, take place for change to occur.
As part of Pride month, we will be hosting Kimahli Powell on June 22nd, to speak about his contributions to the LGBTQ+ community. Kimahli is the Executive Director at Rainbow Railroad, a not-for-profit that helps LGBTQ+ people who are experiencing persecution, harassment or violence in their home countries.
