Registed Nurses' Association of Ontario


Show your Pride across Ontario

Celebrate and empower LGBTQ+ communities across the province this summer.

From Ottawa to London, Pride festivals are scheduled in cities across Ontario to support the history, courage and diversity of our community. RNAO CEO Doris Grinspun and the Rainbow Nursing Interest Group will be marching on June 24 in Toronto for the 38th-annual Toronto Pride Parade. You along with LGBTQ+ folks, family, friends and allies are welcome. As long as you know an RNAO member, you can come and march with us.

Please meet at the corner of Ted Rogers Way and Bloor Street East before the event at 1 p.m.

RSVP to the 38th-annual Toronto Pride Parade on June 24

To commemorate the lives that have been lost to anti-LGBTQ+ violence, participants will be wearing black armbands, provided by RNIG. We encourage participants to show their colours with flags or Pride appropriate gear.
