June is Pride Month all around the world, and an occasion for LGBTQ+ people to celebrate the inclusivity, positivity and diversity of the community. Celebrations include all sorts of parties, conferences and, of course, the pride parade.

Pride month also serves as a reminder that, though strives have been made towards a more inclusive world, injustices towards members of the LGBTQ+ community are still being committed in Canada and abroad.
