On Thursday, June 23rd, 2016 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 four years and this is the second year that U of T will be involved. We are thrilled to announce that this year we will also be joined by OCAD University and York University! Let’s celebrate our PRIDE, build awareness and create safer, more LGBTQ-affirming spaces on all our campuses.

On June 23, tweet your photos using the #DisplayYourPride and #UofT hashtags, as well as your campus’ hashtag (#UTSC, #UTM and #StG). Follow #DisplayYourPride online. Don’t have a Twitter account?  Don’t worry – just send your photo to sgdo@utoronto.ca with your details and we’ll tweet it for you!
