Rain may have fallen, but it did not dampen the spirits of the more than 100 Humber students and staff who marched in Sunday’s Pride parade.

In the week leading up to the parade, flag raising ceremonies were held at North and Lakeshore, and the pride and trans flags put on display for all to see.

Humber has participated in Pride events, including the parade, for more than a decade.

In 2011 the Gender and Sexual Diversity Committee was formed. The committee works to foster an inclusive environment for LGBTQ+ communities at Humber and Guelph-Humber.

A few years later, in 2015, an LGBTQ+ resource centre opened at North campus, followed by one in 2017 at Lakeshore campus.

Starting in 2016, Humber started marching in the Dyke March and Trans Parade as well.

In all, more than 200 members of the Humber community participated in this year’s Pride weekend.
