What does it mean to engage with PRIDE?

Pride: the feeling of joy and satisfaction from one's own achievements or from the achievements of others.

Pride is recognized and celebrated each June as a time to come together to recognize the contributions, experiences, and achievements of the 2SLGBTQ1A+ community. It is a time to ground ourselves in the commitment to cultivate places and opportunities to engage our community in inclusive ways that honour, respect, and embrace the role of pride in shaping our city.

The rainbow flag or pride flag is a symbol of 2SLGBTQIA+ pride, community inclusion, diversity, unity, and visibility. Although the rainbow flag is used widely, it is not the only flag.

Did you know, there are over 20 different flags that represent the intersectional diversity of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual, and two spirit communities? Learn more about Canada’s Pride Season

This Pride Month, our Public Engagement Team is engaging residents to better understand the role of pride in shaping the City's community and public engagement efforts. We believe that diverse voices, perspectives, and experiences help to shape City-led projects, policies, and initiatives that are reflective and inclusive of Hamiltonians. Input and participation from this project will inform internal best practices related to planning for meaningful, inclusive, and equity-centered engagement.

We want to hear from you!
