On July 15, 2014, I have the pleasure of hosting the 3rd annual Pride Week flag raising ceremony in Gander. I was joined with my St. John's trans contingency, the Deputy Mayor, Cyril Abbott, and Sandra from the Gander Women's Centre; along with about a dozen local LGBT community members + allies. A coffee social was followed afterwards at the Women's Centre.
The event has opened new doors for steps that will be taken to form a round-the-calendar LGBT activism and support group in this town.
