Celebrating diversity at Pride 2018

May 18, 2018 — 

The University of Manitoba is honoured to be a Gold Level sponsor of the 2018 Pride Winnipeg Festival and Parade, supporting diversity and inclusion through multiple events.

To celebrate the diversity of the university’s own communities, there are a number of events planned during Pride, including a flag-raising ceremony on May 28 outside UMSU University Centre, with light refreshments and remarks by members of the U of M LGBT2SQ+ community, and the Pride Parade on June 3.

We are looking for faculty, staff, students, alumni, friends and family members (including children and pets) to walk with us at the Pride Parade. Members of the LGBT2SQ+ community and allies are welcome to participate in the festivities.

Registrants will:

  • Walk in the parade for free – including U of M groups, associations and societies
  • Receive a t-shirt (first come, first served)
  • Be provided with swag to pass out during the parade
  • Help carry our U of M Pride flag
  • Meet other members of the U of M community 

RSVP now to walk in the parade with U of M

UMQueer is also looking for volunteers to assist at U of M Pride Week events and at the U of M Pride Festival booth. Students who volunteer for 10 hours can add this opportunity to their Co-Curricular Record.
