Pride Flag flying on County's community flagpole

This morning, Northumberland County raised the Pride Flag on the community flagpole in honour of Pride Month. 

June is recognized as Pride Month in Canada and around the world. It is an opportunity to celebrate sexual diversity, promote equal rights, and build awareness of the challenges faced by the LGBTQ2S+ community. Northumberland County celebrates the diversity of our gender and sexual minority communities including Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer or Questioning, Two-Spirit and more (LGBTQ2S+), and expresses a commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion in our organization and our community.  

The Pride Flag will fly on the County’s community flagpole from June 1 to 7, 2020.
