#DisplayYourPride 2018

June 20

On Wednesday, June 20th, 2018 all three campuses of U of T will be celebrating Pride Month with the annual #DisplayYourPride event! Staff, students, alumni and faculty are all invited to join in on the fun. Show off your creative flair and fabulous colours by decorating your office or student space in support of Pride! There are no limitations  – show us what YOUR pride looks like. Ways to get involved can be anything from decorating your door, to dressing up, to creating a piece of artwork, to putting up colourful balloons or painting your face – anything goes!

Ryerson University has been organizing this event annually for the past 5 years and this is the 3rd year that U of T will be involved. We are thrilled to be participating in this event alongside Ryerson U, OCAD U, York U, and Humber College! Let’s celebrate our PRIDE, build awareness and create safer, more LGBTQ-affirming spaces on all our campuses.

On June 20, post your photos using the #DisplayYourPride and #UofT hashtags, as well as your campus’ hashtag (#UTSC, #UTM and #StG). Follow #DisplayYourPride of Twitter, Instagram and Facebook!
