We did it, we made it to Toronto Pride 2017.

 

Ashton Deroy Writes: Thanks to the help of Melissa, Stephanie and anyone who showed up to Seneca Pride meetings. We did it guys we got to march in the Toronto Pride Parade! 

This was the climax of a year of our vice president and President’s planning and because of this, we were able to promote Seneca’s culture of acceptance, education, and diversity. 

At this event, I was handing out flyers with some other people to promote our group within Seneca College. This is why promotion is one of the most fun methods of Marketing guys

My favorite part of participating with Seneca in the parade was, of course, getting my free black T-Shirt. Stephanie did a great job designing these and I love to collect gay shirts so thank you so much! 

I had to say as a gay man from a bit of a crappy past. Marching in the Gay Pride Parade in Toronto was a dream come true and I am so happy to be able to say I have done this with my college now. Since being out I have done gay Pride events in Belleville, Kingston, and Toronto. 

Did the drama of Toronto Pride interfere with my fun? No, because Pride is a cultural celebration, not a political or business drama. Sometimes organizations want to get in the way of that or preach the wrong message but you just have to continue to show up and relay your own message of acceptance and hope eventually you will be heard. 

Speaking apart from Seneca Pride, I Ashton Deroy would like the OPP to have a feature in next year’s Toronto Pride!
