Pride month began in June 1969 to mark the anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising in New York City, where LGBTQ2S+ people fought against police harassment and discriminatory laws. In June cities all around the world celebrate Pride to acknowledge the LGBTQ2S+ community and to stand up against discrimination and violence toward LGBTQ2S+ people.
Algoma U will be celebrating Pride throughout June and into July and will be raising the Pride Flags on all three campuses on June 28.
