We are excited to partner with SPECTRUM, Waterloo Region’s Rainbow Community Space, on a fantastic line-up of programs and events in recognition of Pride Month this June. Pride Month is about celebrating people in 2SLGBTQ+ communities while also promoting equality and visibility. We invite you to join us – to learn, to have fun and to appreciate how each member of our community contributes to creating safe, welcoming spaces for one another.

Pride Month programs are presented with funds from the Ginny Knight Memorial Fund, for which we are very grateful.
