Huge turn out for Grand Falls Windsor Newfoundland Pride Day! 7/13/14

It was an historic day on July 13, 2014 in the town of Grand Falls-Windsor, Newfoundland and Labrador, as the town celebrated Pride Week for the very first time. I was privileged to host a flag-raising and luncheon social event at the  Status of Women - Central's headquarters.

An amazing 40-50 people showed up for the festivities, including Federal Member of Parliament Scot Simms, a rep from the newly-established Pflag Chapter, and several volunteers and students from the local youth centre.

The event also featured a press conference which included the coverage of local newspaper, the Advertiser. 

The event has lead several local LGBT activists to commit to creating an official Pride non-profit organization for the town, an endeavor which I look forward to helping them create.
