Travel: Toronto Pride 2017

I went to my first ever Pride parade in Toronto in June. It was a great experience. Many people joined together that they support the LGBT+ community, that all people deserve love, dignity, and respect.

I found it was so important that individuals of all ages, cultures, genders, and races came together not only to support but to celebrate how far our world has developed regarding the issues that LGBT+ citizens suffer from daily. We often forget the struggles we may not endure, and thus I would like to remind you that while all people deserve respect, not all receive.

The community of LGBT+ continues to endure situational issues including violence, employment discrimination, poverty, health care, banned trans-gender service workers, the list never ends.
