Simcoe County celebrates Fierté Simcoe Pride
Simcoe County Warden George Cornell joined Colin Nelthorpe, Chair of Fierté Simcoe Pride, for a flag-raising July 26 at the County of Simcoe Administration Centre in support of Fierté’s mission, “to create and offer inclusive events, services, and educational opportunities that rise above heterosexism, heteronormativity, and homo/bi/transphobia, promoting safe communities within Simcoe County.”
On behalf of the County of Simcoe, Cornell expressed support for the tenth annual Fierté Simcoe Pride and its purpose to create a safe and inclusive Simcoe County that supports gender and sexual diversity through services, activities, and events. The County of Simcoe is proud to proclaim Fierté Simcoe Pride and raise the Rainbow and Transgender Pride flags.
Until August 8, Fierté Simcoe Pride has planned numerous events and activities that focus on education, awareness, community development, creative expression, and fun for the whole family. For details, visit www.fiertesimcoepride.com or www.facebook.com/FierteSimcoePride.
