It’s Pride Week at Edmonton Public Schools!

Fri, 2 Jun, 2023

News item: It’s Pride Week at Edmonton Public Schools! (2023)

It’s time to celebrate Pride—June 5–9 is Pride Week at Edmonton Public Schools, and June is Pride Month. 

We’ve recognized the first week of June as Pride Week in our Division since 2019, when the Board of Trustees unanimously voted to mark the celebration annually. 

We have provided schools with ideas and resources to help them join in this year’s celebration of those who identify as being 2SLGBTQIA+, which stands for:

  • two-spirit
  • lesbian
  • gay
  • bisexual
  • transgender
  • queer/questioning
  • intersex
  • asexual
  • other gender and sexual diverse identities

Follow #EPSB and #PrideInEducation, or join us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to see what else we’re doing to mark this important week.

Learn more about how we support 2SLGBTQIA+ families and staff.
