Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia

Leela Sharon Aheer, Minister of Culture, Multiculturalism and Status of Women issued the following statement on International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia:

“During this time in quarantine, we have had the chance to reflect on the world around us. Family and community supports, and random acts of kindness have shown us the nature and kindness of many of our neighbours, associates and sometimes complete strangers.   In Alberta, we have made great progress in building safe communities that welcome everyone, celebrating the freedom to love. However, LGBTQ2S+ people around the world and in our province continue to experience homophobia, transphobia and biphobia. This year, the theme of International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia is ‘break the silence.’ The lived experiences of LGBTQ2S+ Albertans show the cost of exclusion to our society and how to raise awareness about barriers, violence, and discrimination.  It is our collective responsibility to ensure all Albertans are free to live and love, and that all people are accepted and valued.”
