October is LGBTQ History Month. This segment of a 500 ft. rainbow banner demonstrates the determination of Canadian youth and the lasting legacy of LGBTQ2SI+ activism in Canada. As part of the Pride Rainbow Project, Calgary youth, members of the Unitarian Church of Canada, created this banner to show their support for the legalization of same-sex marriage. On August 15, 2005, the banner was used during a demonstration on Parliament Hill, and subsequently divided and distributed among LGBTQ activists and support groups.
