Sheridan Celebrates Pride 2020

Location - Online

 

Pride may look different this year, but we’re still celebrating!

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to persist, its impact is being felt across Canada and no community has been left untouched. This includes the 2SLGBTQ+ community. We know that many individuals of the 2SLGBTQ+ bruin community may be experiencing feelings of isolation, loneliness, and a loss of community. Moreover, being openly proud at this time, while away from campus and other safe spaces, may not be possible for some individuals.

This year’s #SheridanPride celebrations will focus on programming and resources developed by departments across the college that will help you understand, acknowledge, and connect with others during these unprecedented times. We will mark the beginning of PRIDE month with physical pride flags being raised at the Davis and Trafalgar campuses, while a virtual flag will be displayed at HMC.

Although we cannot be together in person, we still want to celebrate and support our 2SLGBTQ+ community here at Sheridan and remind you that you are not alone. We hope that you can review the resources listed below and participate in the activities we have planned to learn about the many supports available to you at Sheridan and in the community.

Virtual Pride Events

June 3 - Pride flag raising on Sheridan campuses

June 10 - Love and PRIDE in the Time of COVID-19 | Noon to 1 p.m.Love

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to persist across canada, it’s increasingly likely that positive diagnoses are starting to hit closer to home. No community has been left untouched and that’s certainly true of the 2SLGBTQ+ community. We know that many individuals of the 2SLGBTQ+ community at sheridan may be experiencing feelings of isolation, loneliness, fear, disconnect and a loss of community. Moreover, being openly proud at this time, while away from campus, may not be a safe option for some individuals.

To coincide with PRIDE month at sheridan, we invite you to attend this webinar in which both student and employee members of the sheridan building positive space committee will share their personal and professional insight and experiences. You are not alone. We hope that you can join us to learn about the many supports available to you at sheridan and in the community.
