We were honored, for the third straight year, to take part in the Montreal Pride Community Day. This year’s marked the 8th edition of Montreal Pride and the 5-day event was greeted with great success. Our booth offered information on U.S. policy towards LGBT rights and services offered at the Consulate, and allowed our staff to show their support for the LGBT community in Montreal and around the world.
As President Obama said in his 2014 LGBT Pride Month Presidential Proclamation: “During Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Pride Month, we celebrate victories that have affirmed freedom and fairness, and we recommit ourselves to completing the work that remains.”
We were very pleased to partner with Montreal Pride for the third consecutive year and want to thank organizers and people who stopped by the booth.
