Township of Amaranth Pride Month Resolution
Whereas, every year, cities all around the world celebrate the diversity that strengthens our Town to commemorate and support sexual and gender minorities' liberation; and
Whereas, Pride Month is a positive stance against discrimination and violence towards 2SLGBTQ+ 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; and
Whereas, the rainbow flag is the most-recognized LGBTQ symbol, designed in 1978; and
Whereas, Pride Month in Amaranth is an opportunity to prevent discrimination and promote awareness and acceptance of every human person and to promote the development of harmonious relationships amongst all members of the community; and
Whereas, we support an inclusive and respectful community where all citizens can live, work and play in a safe and secure environment; and
Now Therefore, I, Mayor Bob Currie and the members of the Council of the Township of Amaranth, do hereby proclaim June 2021 as “Pride Month” in the Township of Amaranth.

This year, the Town of Milton will be celebrating Pride Month by adding the Pride rainbow through select crosswalks and benches. The Town says it will also continue to raise the Pride Flag.
Two rainbow crosswalks will be painted using the Pride flag colours in the downtown core at Brown/Main Street and Charles/Main Street.
Also included will be rainbow benches at all Milton Public Library locations. Those could be put in as early as next week. They will stay up all year round as a safe space for the 2SLGBTQ+ community.
I am proud that we have a progressive, inclusive and trailblazing LGBTQ2S+ community here in The Region of Peel. Moving Peel Pride Month from July to June will align our celebrations with those across the GTHA and will allow our LGBTQ2S+ community to enjoy Pride Month activities across all Regions. With COVID-19 restrictions, our celebrations will look a lot different this year, but I look forward to joining Peel's LGBTQ2S+ celebrations with those across the GTHA for an even bigger and better Pride Month!
