Pride Month: celebrating diversity and resilience.

June marks Pride Month across Canada; a time when we come together to uplift and celebrate 2SLGBTQI+ communities and their contribution, resilience, diversity and ongoing fight for equality.

Cities across Canada will be pulling out the stops to host parades and events that fill the streets with colour and joy, creating a nationwide wave of support and celebration. 

In support of 2SLGBTQI+ youth, BBBSO will be hosting community events throughout the month including Rainbow DnD, Rainbow Family Story Time, and the PRISM gender affirming clothing, plant, and book swap! 

We strive to create a safe space for youth, year round, with our PRISM mentorship program. This program is designed to connect bigs and littles together who both identify as 2SLGBTQI+, providing specialized support and fostering a sense of community and belonging.

This month, we want to encourage our community to reflect on how they can create a safe space for family and friends. This guide is a great resource to learn  how each of us can help progress growth and acceptance in our own lives.

As we celebrate, we will continue to fight for a future where everyone can live authentically and proudly. Happy Pride! 🌈
