Brampton is celebrating the LGBTQ+ community!
The city raised the Pride flag on Wednesday, July 5, 2017, during a ceremony in Ken Whillans Square in front of City Hall.
The flag raising happens annually in July thanks to Peel Pride. It’ll be up for the remaining weeks of the month.
According to the city, commemoration of the Pride community in Peel has been a tradition dating back to 2010.
