OFL Solidarity and Pride Award Nominations (May 31, 2024)

May 12, 2024

This annual award is to acknowledge and celebrate individuals or groups who have made a significant or ongoing contribution to the advancement of the two-spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex and additional sexually and gender diverse (2SLGBTQIA+) human rights, equity, and inclusion. We are seeking nominees who are leaders in advancing equity and quality of life for 2SLGBTQIA+ people in workplaces, communities, and globally.

The OFL encourages affiliates, local unions, and labour councils to view their nominees through an intersectional lens when making their selections. Affiliates are encouraged to nominate Pride activists who identify within equity seeking groups such as Indigenous, Black, racialized, and/or living with disabilities.
