Pride gives us the opportunity to be willingly visible in our community; to show the world our diversity; to give thanks to those before us who have campaigned for our rights, and to give voice to our ongoing quest for equality. Despite government legislation, many within the LGBTTIQQ2SA* community of Kingston still live in fear of discrimination. Kingston Pride is our opportunity to confront those fears, to gather as a community and to be out and proud to ourselves and those around us.

For more information about Kingston Pride 2022, visit the Kingston Pride Facebook page.

City Hall and Springer Market Square will be illuminated red and white on June 30th for Stroke and Aphasia Awareness Month.?

Stroke is sometimes called a 'brain attack', and occures when something happens to the blood flow to the brain. There are different types of strokes and each person is affected differently from the stroke because the brain controls everything we do, and thus anything can be impacted.?

It causes impairments to our production or understanding of speech and can affect our ability to read or write. There are different types of Aphasia and learning communication stratagies can help.
