We are saddened by the act of hate that unfolded at the University of Waterloo on Wednesday, June 28, 2023. Our thoughts go to the victims of this Homophobic and Transphobic attack and to the entire 2SLGBTQIA+ community. These events remind us that learning institutions everywhere need to be places that promote inclusivity and acceptance, and are safe spaces for all.
June 1st marks the start of Pride Month, a celebration and learning of 2SLGBTQIA+ people, history and futures.
This week, the Upper Grand District School Board and our schools across the region are kicking off Pride Month. During the month of June and throughout the year, the UGDSB supports 2SLGBTQIA+ staff, students and their families by celebrating the joy of identity and centering 2SLGBTQIA+ histories, contributions and excellence.
With Pride Month right around the corner, students at the UGDSB got a head start at celebrating by throwing a concert performance for Pride and inclusion.
