More about Pride month at UTSC

Pride month is an opportunity to acknowledge the resilience, diversity and history of 2SLGBTQ+ communities. For the fifth year, UTSC will be raising the More Colour, More Pride flag. This flag features the Pride colours to honour the experiences and resilience of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT+) people. The addition of black and brown stripes to center the experiences of Black, Indigenous and racialized people in the 2SLGBTQ+* community. This flag is an affirmation of UTSC’s commitment to being intentionally inclusive and representing more voices and experiences in the 2SLGBTQ+ community. Additionally, we raise the Trans Pride flag to represent 2-spirit, trans, non-binary, and gender non-conforming people.    

The 8-colour Pride Flag (black, brown, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple) and the Trans Pride flag (blue, pink, white) are waving in the wind in front of a blue cloudy sky at UTSC.
