Brock University — a place where everyone can learn, work, and live with respect.
As the all-inclusive flag was raised in front of Brock’s Arthur Schmon Tower on May 30, the University got an early start on the worldwide celebration of Pride Month.
Throughout June, the Brock community has participated in more than a dozen virtual and in-person activities that educated, informed, and entertained Brock’s Two-Spirit and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (2S&LGBTQ+) communities and their allies.
The month-long celebration owes its thanks to the collaboration between Human Rights and Equity (HRE), Brock Pride, the Student Justice Centre (SJC), and the Brock University Students’ Union (BUSU), among others.
At Brock, Pride Month takes place in addition to Pride Week, which Brock hosts annually in March to celebrate while the majority of students are still on campus.
Ken Chan, Vice President of Administration at Brock University, said the month-long slate of activities is a testament to the type of community Brock aspires to be.
“Celebrating Pride Month is one way we embrace Brock’s commitment to an inclusive environment where everyone can learn, work, and live in a community that respects people of all identities,” says Chan. “The various events during Pride Month are a fabulous reminder to work proudly together for inclusion and representation throughout the year.”
