SUDBURY – To celebrate Pride Month and the LGBTQ2S community, Cambrian College is flying the rainbow flag, and its rainbow crosswalk has been given a fresh coat of paint.
A flag-raising ceremony was held at the entrance to the College’s main campus in Greater Sudbury. The ceremony was organized by Cambrian’s diversity committee and included a teaching about Two Spirit from Kelly Senecal, the Cultural Facilitator at the Wabnode Centre for Indigenous Student Services at Cambrian.
It is the first year Cambrian has raised the rainbow flag, and the second year for the rainbow crosswalk.
“Celebrate today by looking at everybody as one, and by learning from one another,” said Bill Best to the crowd of more than 100 people attending the ceremony.
