Pride Week
 Hey Nelson, June is Pride Month and we’re kicking it off with Pride Week. Did you know that in Canada, Pride Week evolved out of the mass protests that followed the 1981 Toronto bathhouse raids and this year marks the 39th anniversary of this event. Every year, a theme is selected for Pride Week that reflects the current context of the queer community and helps shape the festivities. The theme for 2019 is ‘Embrace Everyone.’ 
Be sure to stop by the front foyer during lunch every day this week to check out the different activities that will be offered to help celebrate and support the members of the LGBTQ2+ communities, starting today with button making. Let’s work together to make Nelson a place where everyone feels accepted regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
