Residents raise flag, celebrate Gay Pride at home for the aged|
| || ||
On Friday, June 24, residents of Fudger House, a Toronto home for the aged,
will raise a rainbow flag to celebrate Pride Week. Toronto Councillors Kyle Rae
(Ward 27, Toronto Centre-Rosedale) and Pam McConnell (Ward 28, Toronto
Centre-Rosedale) will join residents, local clergy, members of the Senior Pride
Network, staff and community organizations at this celebration.
The celebration will also include a barbecue lunch, "golden oldies" music, and
an opportunity for guests to celebrate Fudger House and its residents of all
cultures, faiths and sexual orientations.
Toronto Homes for the Aged is committed to providing care and services that
respect, support and enable every resident to have the highest level of
independence and quality of life. Connections with our neighbours and the
surrounding community play a major part in making this vision a reality for the
residents who call our homes home. Fudger House is one of two Toronto homes
that have developed gay-positive culture and services for residents who are
gay, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual, transgender or two-spirited.
Date: Friday, June 24
Time: Flag-raising at 11:30 a.m., BBQ celebration at Noon
