Affirmation Counts: YMCA Pride 2016 Speaker Series
Pride month has come to an end but the messages of acceptance and community continue on. In honor of Pride, the YMCA of Greater Toronto Area hosted a speaker series, entitled "Affirmation Counts". The series occurred throughout the GTA at YMCAs in Toronto, Mississauga, and Markham.
One of the speakers at Central YMCA was Kimber Kunimoto, a YMCA Pride committee member who shared the importance of inclusion and safe spaces. The interactive workshop included attendees such as Medhat Mahdy, President and CEO of the YMCA of Greater Toronto, Peter Dinsdale, President and CEO of YMCA Canada, teens from YMCA Youth Leadership Development programs and a variety of community members. Thank you to all who attended!
