Each June, Pride celebrations take place all around the world. Pride is about being seen, and the 2SLGBTQ+ community and its allies honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising and riots in Manhattan, a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States. Pride helps us address the ongoing work for acceptance and equality, raising awareness with colorful parades, calls for activism and support for organizations that promote these values.
HILO stands together in support of the 2SLGBTQ+ community, the work that has been done to create vibrant and colorful building communities, and the work that we are doing together. From our own team to our Tenant Experience Network of users, partners and supporters, HILO is an inclusive community that puts people first. We believe that connection and belonging lead to meaningful relationships and incredible work.
With COVID restrictions varying from region to region, we’ve compiled a list of Pride celebrations to attend, either virtual or in-person in Toronto, Ottawa and NYC, some local organizations to support and educational resources to keep the conversation going.
