LC-Pride-Flag-2019-3.jpg Promoting a campus culture that is inclusive to all, Lethbridge College has once again raised the Pride flag on its campus.

The rainbow flag is flying outside of the main entrance to the college, in conjunction with Lethbridge-wide Pride activities that are taking place throughout June. This is the fourth year that the college has flown the Pride flag in support of the LGBTQ+ community.

“This is an annual event, but the significance never diminishes,” says Dr. Paula Burns, Lethbridge College President and CEO. “Having a prominent visual signifier like the Pride flag sends a message that we are inclusive, inviting and supportive of all people. Everyone deserves equality – that is the message we want our students and employees to see when they enter our campus.”

Representatives from Lethbridge College will once again march in the Lethbridge Pride parade on June 22. Members of the leadership team, employees and students will walk together as a symbol of solidarity and support.

The college showed its commitment to providing support and resources to its LGBTQ+ community by opening a Pride Lounge in September. Oversight of the lounge is provided by the Lethbridge College Students’ Association LGBTQ+ Club, which is open to all students. The college also created gender non-specific washrooms on campus for the first time in 2018.

The annual Pride parade takes place at 11 a.m. on Saturday, June 22, and will kick off at the Civic Centre Park. Parade participants will march toward Galt Gardens where the community will gather to celebrate Pride in the Park.

A full list of Pride week events can be found on the official Lethbridge Pride Fest website.
