Some communities gather for marches as vaccinations rise, infections drop. The COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of 2020 Pride events in Canada and around the world. But as more people get vaccinated and cases of infections trend downward, some communities have been able to gather in person for marches and celebrations in June. Pride month commemorates the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in New York City, a seminal moment in the fight for equal rights for LGBT people. The rainbow flag was created a decade later as a symbol of the community’s pride. It is flown by others as a symbol of support. Here’s a look at some of the colourful celebrations honouring diversity and inclusion.
