LETHBRIDGE, AB – A rainbow flag is once again flying high at the University of Lethbridge.

The pride flag was raised Monday during an informal ceremony.

It’ll remain visible at the Students’ Union Bus Loop until the end of June in support of LGBT+ Pride Month.

The U of L has said many times at previous flag-raising ceremonies, that it’s committed to creating a welcoming environment for all members of the campus community.

The flag raising is also a complement to a wide array of ongoing campus initiatives for 2SLGBTQ+ persons, including a recent project, the creation of the new 2SLGBTQ+ Resources website.

“The webpage was developed to create accessible 2SLGBTQ+ resources on campus and was driven by the need for greater visibility and inclusion,” says Kathryn DeLucia, a fourth-year women and gender studies student who was on the working group that helped create the site. “It is vital the U of L continues this work to affirm we are a campus that values queer and trans students and their experiences.”

Meanwhile, Lethbridge College is expected raise its pride flag next week.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
