Supporting Pride events in your community is a great way to show solidarity in promoting dignity, respect and human rights for members of the rainbow community in the workplace and in our communities.

Please take a moment to find out when pride events are happening in your community. It’s a great way for your local union to celebrate how far we’ve come while remembering that transphobia, homophobia and biphobia are still all too common for many 2SLGBTQIA+ people across the world.

In solidarity,

Scott Lunny
Director
