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 LGBTQ2 Pride Month.
The Service raised the rainbow flag yesterday morning (Monday June 4) with a ceremony at OPS headquarters. Several members of the public attended to show their support of the LGBTQ2 community.
“We are again proud to fly the rainbow flag in support of Pride Month and our LGBTQ2 residents in Orangeville. We support an inclusive and respectful community where all citizens can live, work and play in a safe and secure environment”, said Chief Wayne Kalinski.
LGBTQ2 Pride is the positive stance against discrimination and violence toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and two-spirit (LGBTQ2) people to promote their self-affirmation, dignity, equality rights, increase their visibility as a social group, build community, and celebrate sexual diversity and gender variance.
