Pride Month

June 2022


Every year, cities around the world recognize June as Pride Month – dedicated to the celebration of the LGBTQ2S+ community and culture, in support of LGBTQ2S+ rights; and


Pride Month is a time to celebrate the LGBTQ2S+ community across Canada. It's also an opportunity to acknowledge the history, the hardships, and the challenges that the community has endured, along with celebrating the progress that has been made.


In Canada, the first demonstrations took place in Ottawa and Vancouver in 1971. By 1973, Pride events were held in several Canadian cities, including Montréal, Ottawa, Saskatoon, Toronto, Vancouver, and Winnipeg.


LGBTQ2S+ rights have come a long way, there’s still a lot that can be done to help improve the physical, mental and social wellbeing of the LGBTQ2S+ community; and


The Town of BWG celebrates the diversity of our LGBTQ2S+ communities and is committed to achieving diversity, equity, and inclusion within our organization and across our community.


That His Worship Mayor Rob Keffer and Members of Council proclaim June 2022 as PRIDE MONTH in the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury.​​
