டொராண்டோ நகரில் Pride Month அறிவிப்பதில் பெருமை மேயரின் செய்தி
WHEREAS the month of June marks Pride Month in Toronto, the largest Pride celebration in North America and one of the country’s top arts and cultural festivals showcasing diversity, inclusion and creativity.
This month presents an opportunity to reflect on the progress made to recognize and protect the rights of LGBTQ2S+ communities and the work that still needs to be done.
This year the festival is themed Virtual PRIDE Month as all events and programming will be offered virtually. While Pride has had to go virtual due to COVID-19, programming will help keep the LGBTQ2S+ and broader
communities connected and engaged throughout the month.
We must work together to support the LGBTQ2S+ community and fight back against any form of discrimination, harassment and violence. People who identify as LGBTQ2S+ are valued residents of our city who should always feel safe and respected for the contributions they have made to the City of Toronto.
I encourage residents to show support to our LGBTQ2S+ community and the diverse, inclusive and creative culture that Toronto is known for by participating in the virtual events throughout Pride Month.
NOW THEREFORE, I, Mayor John Tory, on behalf of Toronto City Council, do hereby proclaim June 2020 as “Pride Month” in the City of Toronto.
