Day of Pink: Statement from Minister Aheer

Day of Pink

April 8, 2020

Leela Sharon Aheer, Minister of Culture, Multiculturalism and Status of Women, issued the following statement on Day of Pink:

“We are only strong when we stand together. All Albertans must stand united against discrimination and hatred.

“On Day of Pink, we wear pink to raise awareness of the discrimination against LGBTQ2S+ Albertans. Wearing pink helps spark conversations about the hatred that still exists in our world, and right here in Alberta. It creates a visible movement and helps remind us that we are not alone – and that by standing together, we can create true change.

“Today, please wear pink. Start conversations and share information on social media.

“Even in these difficult times, while we self-isolate and practise social distancing, we can come together to build a better future. This is an opportunity to reflect on how we can create safe communities for LGBTQ2S+ Albertans and all Albertans.”
