Rainbow flag waves proudly at police headquarters
The Orangeville Police Service is once again proud to fly the rainbow flag, during the month of June, in support and celebration of 2SLGBTQ+ Pride Month.
The Police Service raised the rainbow flag this morning (Monday June 3) with a ceremony at OPS headquarters. Several members of the public attended to show their support of the 2SLGBTQ+ community.
“We are proud to support Pride Month by flying the rainbow flag again this year. The Orangeville Police Service celebrates inclusion and diversity in our community. We want all residents and visitors to be safe and respected in Orangeville”, said Chief Wayne Kalinski.
LGBTQ2 Pride is the positive stance against discrimination and violence toward two-spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and others (2SLGBTQ+) to promote their self-affirmation, dignity, equality rights, increase their visibility as a social group, build community, and celebrate sexual diversity and gender variance.
