MoveUP stands with the LGBTQ community in pride and solidarity. Our union will be participating in the Victoria Pride Parade on July 8, 2018 – 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

MoveUP members, families and friends will join vice-presidents Annette Toth and Christy Slusarenko walking in the parade with our banner, flags and fun items to hand out.

The pride parade provides an opportunity to show our continued support of the lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender and queer community, their friends and allies in celebration of the unique spirit and culture of the LGBTQ community. We hope to see you on July 8th.

The parade begins at the corner of Pandora and Government at 11 a.m., continuing south on Government, turning west on Belleville and then south on Menzies until turning west at Kingston; parade moves south on Oswego ending at MacDonald Park at the corner of Oswego and Simcoe.
