This Thursday, May 17, is International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia. Here in Halifax, there will be a flag-raising at the Halifax Infirmary, along with a panel discussion put on by prideHealth. At six o’clock that evening, there will be a rally at Grand Parade put on by NSRAP.
The theme for the event is Reclaiming Our Space, Reclaiming Our Rights. According to their press release:
"All attendees are encouraged to reclaim public space by wearing the colours of the rainbow or clothes with a message (e.g. “Some girls marry girls. Get over it.”), carrying rainbow flags or displaying signs or banners. Show your pride!"
Personally, I’m hoping to see a few seahorses cheering.
