CANADIAN 2SLGBTQ+ PRIDE HISTORY
When we think of Pride History, Canadians often think of the historical Pride Movements in the United States. However, Canada has its own pride history, which is not discussed as often but is essential for us to understand to take meaningful steps in our collective journey towards being active allies for the 2SLGBTQ+ community. In this talk, we will learn about the timeline of Pride History in Canada, including the tragedies, the successes, and the people who helped us get to where we are today. Additionally, it will provide insight into the timeline of human rights gains and progress for 2SLGBTQ+ Canadians while acknowledging and highlighting where work still needs to be done. It is my hope that this knowledge, awarness, and perspective generates increased engagement
