FREE LOVE, FREE EDUCATION

June 22 – June 28, 2015

Our love is radical, political, beautiful, resilient and infinite. Pride is political. Whether it is celebrating the proposed Ontario Sexual Education Curriculum, lobbying for OSAP reform for queer and trans people distanced by their family, or organising for better access to post-secondary education for queer and trans students we know that our pride is political. So this year we are celebrating, agitating and organising for free love and free education.
