In 2015, U of T joined up with Ryerson University to organize #DisplayYourPride, where students, staff, and faculty were invited to celebrate Pride by decorating their offices in support of Pride. There was no limit and everyone was encouraged to show off what their pride looked like to them. All were invited to tweet their photos using #DisplayYourPride and #UofT hashtags and the photos were amazing!
Last year was great… but it’s clear we can do even more! This year, the Positive Space Committees on all three campuses of U of T will be celebrating Pride Month again with the annual #DisplayYourPride event! On Thursday June 23, 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!
We are thrilled to announce that this year we will also be joined not only by Ryerson, but also by OCAD University and York University! Let’s celebrate our PRIDE, build awareness and create safer, more LGBTQ-affirming spaces on all of 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 firstname.lastname@example.org with your details and we’ll tweet it for you!
Stay tuned for unique Display Your Pride contests and events on each campus.
