CONSULTATION ON POLICE AND MILITARY IN PRIDE
SIMCOE COUNTY, ON — November 27, 2018 — Fierté Simcoe Pride (FSP) has launched a consultation process on the participation of police and military in Pride. This consultation will specifically look at participation in the annual Trans Pride March, as well as potential future marches and/or parades.
FSP recognises the long and often complicated history that these institutions have with gender and sexually (GSD) people. These consultations will give the community a voice in the matter, and will help give a clear path forward.
“We want to be proactive about this issue, especially as Pride continues to grow in Simcoe County,” said FSP president Brandon Rhéal Amyot. “It’s essential that that we hear the voices of community members who are often left out of decision making. We wouldn’t be able to do our work without community input.”
A short, anonymous survey is now live for the community to give feedback. FSP is encouraging everyone to fill it out and share with interested individuals and groups.
The survey can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/JQB53TZ. Submissions will be accepted until December 31.
