Calgary Pride has been made aware of the BLM spray paint on the rainbow crosswalk downtown. We’ve requested that it not be touched or changed for the time being. The Pride movement was born inside the courage of Black Trans folks who fought back in the face of oppression. 1/2

UPDATE: Community consultation is of utmost importance to our organization. We will not comment on behalf of the Black Lives Matter movement without first ensuring that the voices of that movement are centered within the discussion. Calgary Pride has connected with Black Lives Matter YYC, and we are committed to moving forward in a manner that honours the voices of our communities. We hope to provide more information by next week.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
