An organizing committee is working to ensure participation by University of Windsor staff, faculty, and students in the Windsor-Essex Pride Fest parade, Aug. 11 on Ottawa St.
“We want to show our support for the LGBTQ+ community,” says Ryan Flannagan, associate vice-president for student experience. “Our planning is in the early stages, so we may be modest in what we create for the parade, but I am confident we can find interesting and fun things to represent UWindsor.”
The parade will proceed down Ottawa St. starting at 11 a.m. to conclude at festival activities in Lanspeary Park.
Flannagan invites all those interested in joining the parade marchers to sign up to give organizers a sense of numbers to expect.
