Nurses celebrate diversity during Pride month

In honour of Pride month, RNAO and its interest group the Rainbow Nursing Interest Group (RNIG) continue to speak out against discrimination and social exclusion based on sexual orientation and gender identity. We continue to stay committed to celebrating diversity, inclusivity and equality. 

This year, due to COVID-19, the Toronto pride parade is being marked virtually with an online portal that highlights local collectives, artists, makers and performers. Similar to Toronto, York Region, London and other cities are hosting virtual events. To see what your city is up to, please see 2SLGBTQI+ events in Ontario. 

As part of Toronto’s virtual pride parade on June 28 at 2 p.m. (ET), RNIG created a video wishing everyone a happy Pride month. Stay tuned on RNIG’s Facebook for updates.

RNAO and RNIG have been long-time advocates for the province’s 2SLGBTQI+ communities and are committed to diversity and human rights. Please read RNIG’s homepage on respecting sexual orientation and gender identity.
