Region of Peel Pride Celebrations

June is Pride month in Peel and we’re recognizing our vibrant LGBTQ2S+ communities and hosting a virtual event on June 23rd.

As a community leader, and together with our municipal partners, we are committed to addressing barriers and challenges that disadvantage LGBTQ2S+ residents, and taking action to make Peel a truly inclusive community where all residents feel respected and supported.

Join our virtual Pride event, Peel’s LGBTQ2S+ Communities: The Complexities Within, on June 23rd from 6 to 7:15pm featuring speakers from QTBIPOC sauga and Moyo Health and Community Services. The evening will include discussion about complexities within the Two-Spirit and LGBTQ+ communities, including the racialized experience and health inequities that have been intensified through COVID. Learn more and register for the event.

We invite all Peel residents to participate in our many virtual community-driven events across the Region.

Peel’s LGBTQ2S+ communities are vibrant and strong. Recognizing their achievements while acknowledging the work that still needs to be done to address systemic barriers, ensures our communities thrive.
