“You can’t have rainbows without a little rain” was the Calgary Pride Parade website slogan on the rainy morning of September 6th. That afternoon, more than twenty UNA members from Locals 1, 121 & 115 braved the weather and marched in Calgary’s 25th annual Pride Parade.
This marked the first time that UNA marched under it’s own banner in the parade.
Nurses showed leadership by supporting social justice. Some even networked with politicians at the NDP float in front of the UNA group in the parade.
Even the pooches came out to show their pride.
Will you come and show your colours with us next year?
