In an article from McMaster University, McMaster AVP Equity and Inclusion Arig al Shaibah reflected on the recent human rights gains and the work to be done in Canada and beyond. McMaster noted that the university would be raising the pride flag outside University Hall. Queen’s University has raised the Progress Pride flag and will be sharing resources and events with its community. The university also highlighted the work of the QueerMed committee, a student group that will be reviewing Queen’s MD pre-clerkship curriculum and making recommendations on how the university can increase and enhance 2SLGBTQIA+ representation. University of Manitoba President Michael Benarroch announced that it had permanently raised the Progress Pride Flag in front of the UMSU University Centre, and shared a number of events that would be held throughout the month.
