Statement from Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown on International Day Against Homophobia Transphobia and Biphobia

The following is a statement from Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown on International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia:

 

“The International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia is used as an opportunity to join together in solidarity with people from across the globe to condemn bigotry and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, while promoting understanding and equality.

Ontario is a vibrant province with a rich and diverse culture. We are privileged to live in a province that not only celebrates diversity, but is also strengthened by it. Our LGBT community is one of many that helps makes our province the greatest place in the world to live.

No one should ever feel discriminated against because of who they are or who they love; in fact they should be embraced. I was proud to be the first Ontario PC Leader to officially march in the Toronto Pride Parade, and I look forward to continuing efforts to attain greater acceptance across our province.”
