Welcome to Calgary Pride Week!
Happy Pride, Team YYC! Calgary’s annual Pride Week celebrations kick-off today and continue until Sept. 5.
Creating a safe and secure environment, isn’t just about runways and roadways – YYC is dedicated to fostering a safe and inclusive space for all. We are proud of the work we do year-round to ensure guests, employees, and all passing through YYC can be their authentic selves every day of the year.
Celebrating and evolving with the Pride movement — The Pride LINK Shuttle crosswalk in Concourse B and the YYC letters in the International Terminal Building check-in hall are looking a little different. Both have been updated to the Progress Pride Flag to better represent the Pride movement and the diversity and experiences of intersectionality of the 2SLGBTQ+ community. Make sure you stop by and take a look when you have a free moment.
The learnings and conversations that begin during events like Pride Week have the biggest impact when we take them away into our daily lives and continue the conversations and work that were started. We encourage you to take some time to explore educational resources such as Creating an LGBTQ+ Inclusive Workplace from Lifeworks, LGBTQ2S+ Workplace Inclusion Training from Pride Canada, or LGBTQ2S+ 101 from OK2BMe.
We hope you’ll join us in celebrating Calgary Pride 2022! Don’t forget to check out the events going on around the city this week, including the Annual Calgary Pride Parade taking place on Sunday, Sept. 4, head to the Calgary Pride website to find out more.
