We’re Celebrating Pride Month
We’re well into the most exciting month of the year: Pride Month! It’s also the official start of Wedding Season, which makes June twice as exciting for us at Canada Gay Weddings.
Pride month is all about support. Not only do members of the LGBTQ+ community get together to support one another, allies from around the world rally to show love and support for anyone who identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer.
Celebrating Pride in Canada
In Canada, we’re especially proud! We’re proud that we were one of the first countries to accept gay marriage and we’re proud to be one of the most gay friendly countries in the world, with an abundance of LGBTQ+ areas and communities for people to enjoy all year round.
For Canadians celebrating pride this month, we want to let everyone know that even after the rainbow flags come down there are always places to turn to in the Canadian LGBTQ+ community. You deserve to feel supported and loved all year long, not only during Pride month.
So to keep the love flowing, we wanted our readers to connect with the same incredible LGBTQ+ organizations that have helped Canada Gay Weddings over the years.
Pflag, for peer support
If you or your partner are ever feeling alienated or alone, Pflag Canada is proud to be Canada’s only national organization that offers peer-to-peer support striving to help all Canadians with issues of sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.
