Halifax Marks Day against Homophobia and Transphobia

by Editor

May 17th is the International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia, and Haligonians will mark the event with a rally this evening at 6 pm at Grand Parade Square. Speakers will include representatives from the Rainbow Refugees Association of Nova Scotia, Halifax Pride, Nova Scotia Rainbow Action Project, and many more. 

This rainbow-Canada flag is being flown at Prince Andrew High School in Dartmouth this week as a show of support to the LGBTQ community. Despite some reports of complaints from community members (the flag flies in the usual spot of the Canadian flag), the school has kept the flag flying.

Hundreds of high school students are participating in a day of silence today, in solidarity with those who are silenced in many ways by reaction to their sexuality or gender identity.
