Flag Raising
Owen Sound City Hall
808 2nd Avenue East

The Transgender Flag will be raised to commemorate November 20, the Transgender Day of Remembrance in Canada. The flag is flown to honour those transgender people who have died from violence against them or by suicide. We also honour those who live the challenge of becoming their true selves. Please join Owen Sound PFLAG and Grey Bruce Pride in support of transgender community members.

Grey Bruce Pride and the Markdale LGBTQ+ Connection group are applying to have a Transgender Flag Raising, to be held the morning of November 20 in Grey Highlands, at the municipal flagpole in Markdale. We are waiting for the approval of this at the Grey Highlands Council meeting on November 6. Look for an update at https://www.facebook.com/GreyBrucePride

ALSO:
The Grey Bruce Pride committee is inviting members of the LGBTQ2S community to join to fill the positions of chairperson, secretary/note taker and newsletter coordinator. Please email your name, qualifying skills and talents for any of these positions to greybruceprideinfo@gmail.com before the next committee meeting on November 14
Grey Bruce Pride is now on Twitter at #Pride2019
