Haida Gwaii will be celebrating Pride Week from June 19th to June 28th.
As part of the week long celebration of LGBT events, the Village of Masset has approved painting all four crosswalks in the community rainbow colours.
Spearheaded by Haida Gwaii Pride, Natanis LaBoucane, says her child and family members are LGBT and it’s a great way to show support.
She says Haida Gwaii is a great place for acceptance of LGBT people, saying her child has faced more issues living in Vancouver than on the islands.
Prince Rupert will also be painting one of their crosswalks in rainbow colours in solidarity of the LGBT community.
LaBoucane says they’re looking for volunteers to help paint the crosswalks on June 24th and June 25th.
