U of T Family Pride PA Day

Date: Friday, June 2, 2023 (PA Day for TDSB and TCDSB elementary schools)
Time: 10 am to 11:30 am
Location: St. George Campus location will be emailed to participants

The Hart House, Family Care Office, QUTE, and Positive Space invite the U of T community and their families to a Pride month celebration of families! Children (and adults!) will have the opportunity to create artistic representations of their families.

Art supplies will be available to:

  • draw or sculpt their families
  • create buttons
  • make a zine
  • help decorate a banner for Pride Pub which takes place on June 9

Professor Hannah Dyer (Brock University) and Julia Sinclair-Palm (Carleton University) will display some of the artwork children drew as part of their “Drawing queer and trans kinship with children” research project and speak about their project. Family Pride PA Day participants can take photos of their art projects and add their photos to a presentation. Together, we will create a slide show of diverse and celebrated families reflective of the event’s participants.

Did we mention families will have a chance to get a family photo taken by a budding photographer?

Let’s get together to create art that celebrates our families this Pride!

Registration required. To register, email family.care@utoronto.ca and include the names of family members attending, status with U of T, and ages of participating children.

University of Toronto students, staff, postdoctoral fellows and faculty are welcome. If you have any access needs to ensure your full participation in this event, please contact the Family Care Office and we will make appropriate arrangements.
