This June marks Canada’s first ever Pride Month when we celebrate the achievements and history the LGBTQ2S community in their fight for equality of rights and opportunity. Toronto has long been a place of inclusion for all groups facing discrimination and the message of Pride to embrace diversity and to love each other is a strong and important one for all of us to embrace.
Here is a link to the Senior Pride Network. This network is committed to expanding programs and services for 50+ lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer people in the City of Toronto.
