Celebrate Pride Month – June 2023

By May 26, 2023Events

Pride Month is an opportunity to celebrate and uplift the 2SLGBTQ+ community, while recognizing the progress made towards equal treatment and human rights.

The City of Mississauga is committed to fostering an open, inclusive and equitable environment for all. Throughout Pride Month, we stand in solidarity with our 2SLGBTQ+ community members, and reaffirm our commitment to these values.

We will be celebrating our 2SLGBTQ+ community in June. You can participate in Pride Month festivities in the following ways:

By attending a Pride event in-person or virtually
By checking out a book from the library to learn more about the 2SLGBTQ+ community
