Virtual Pride 2020
Virtual Pride 2020
Centennial College is proud to celebrate Two-Spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex and asexual (2SLGBTQQIA+) communities, and all other sexual orientations and genders during Pride Month as a part of our commitment to fostering an inclusive learning, living and working environment. Get Involved!
Join us on June 25 from noon to 1 pm for our first-ever Centennial College Virtual Pride! It’s an opportunity to celebrate 2SLGBTQQIA+ communities and further our commitment to create more inclusive spaces for all individuals that identify as Two-Spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex and asexual. The party will feature:
- messages from our community and entertainment, including drag performances from Centennial’s own Culinary Diva - Devine Darling and local superhero Lucy Flawless;
- opportunities to build connections inside and outside of the College;
- community partners providing resources, information and support for 2SLGBTQQIA+ staff, students and allies.
Our event will double as a fundraiser! Donations to the COVID-19 Relief Fund for the week of June 22-26 will go towards supporting our 2SLGBTQQIA+ students in need. Share your supportive comments live on social media, using the hashtag #ShowYourPrideCC
