LGBTQ2S+ Pride Week

Posted June 11, 2021

This morning Deputy Mayor Elaine Manzer attended the raising of the LGBTQ2S+ Pride Flag along with members from the Peace River Pride Society. The flag will fly until June 18 as part of the Peace River’s LGBTQ2S+ Pride Week, which has been officially proclaimed in Peace River.

We commend the Pride Society for their tireless advocacy on behalf of all LGBTQ2S+ people in Peace River and their work in building understanding and community.

Diversity and inclusion are more than just media buzzwords. They represent complex ideas and values that we should all seek to bring to our everyday life; and we thank the Pride Society for bringing these to life for the town. We have seen social growth in our community that is directly the result of the Society’s work and we want to encourage their ongoing voice in this area. The Pride Society represents a valuable – and valued – aspect of our diversity. We wish our LGBTQ2s+ community all the best with their event this year and extend our hopes for their future successes.
