This year, for the first time, Brantford City Hall flew the Transgender Pride flag. The flag was raised to mark the start of Transgender Awareness Week, 2017.
Congratulations to our friends at PFLAG Brantford and the Brantford Advocacy Transgender Alliance for their tireless advocacy and this exciting show of inclusion and solidarity on the part of the City of Brantford.
Here are some of the articles about this historic flag-raising, and Erica James, one of the powerhouses behind LGBTQ+ advocacy in Brant County.
