Edmonton Public Schools celebrates Pride Week

Mon, 6 Jun, 2022

News item: Pride Week 2022

June 6–10 is Pride Week at Edmonton Public Schools, and June is Pride Month.

The Division has held celebrations every year since 2019, when the Board of Trustees unanimously voted to declare the first week of June as Pride Week in our Division.

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 FacebookTwitter and Instagram to see what else we’re doing to mark this important week.

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