Another year, another magnificent celebration of Winnipeg Pride! The MMSA was thrilled to see many of our student members participate in various events throughout the duration of Winnipeg Pride, hosted from May 25 – June 3. Events specific to the University of Manitoba included a lunch time drag show hosted in the Brodie Atrium, a transgender health panel, and a gender inclusive zumba party.
“It was great to see such a strong turnout of medical students at Pride!” – MMSA Member, Lochlan Wilson
Although the Pride Parade and many other high impact events for the Winnipeg LGBTQIA+ community have wound up for 2018, the MMSA encourages all students to continue celebrating their diversity throughout the year! One way to do that could be getting involved with the MMSA’s own LGBTTQI* Interest Group. More information can be found on here our interest group page.
Didn’t get to attend pride this year? Worry not! The planning committee for Pride Winnipeg is already hard at work getting ready for the celebration next year, set to run from May 24 – June 2 of 2019.
