Celebrating Pride Season

June officially kicks off Pride season in Canada. Celebrations and events are led by 2SLGBTQI+ communities across the country throughout the year, but particularly in the summer, calling attention to the resilience, talent and contributions of the people they represent. So, who are they?

2S: Two-Spirit (Indigenous peoples)
L: Lesbian
G: Gay
B: Bisexual
T: Transgender
Q: Queer
I: Intersex
+: Inclusive of all people who identify as part of sexual and gender diverse communities or who use additional terminologies

Pillars of Pride are inclusivity and equality — values that carry meaning well beyond the communities listed above. The City of Westmount supports that no person should be left out because of how they live their sexuality or gender, and that equal rights are for everyone.

We wish you a happy Pride and celebrate your freedom to be yourself.
