The Township of Brock shows its support for those combating homophobia, transphobia and biphobia and acknowledge the struggles our LGTBQ+ community faces by proclaiming May 17th the International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia.
Mayor John Grant, along with Allison Bennie, North Durham PFLAG representative, raised the flag in support of this initiative with words spoken by Mayor Grant.
“The Township of Brock continues to advocate for our friends and denounce this discrimination. It is our role as a community to ensure all members feel safe and supported. Equality is a fundamental right for all Canadians regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.
We want to extend a sincere and heartfelt thank you to the advocates and allies of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and two-spirit individuals in The Township of Brock and Durham Region. Specifically, our friends at the North Durham branch of Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG).
It is our hope that the members of the Township of Brock continue to support and advocate for all citizens regardless of sexual orientation, gender expression or gender identity. “
