Letter – Even more to be proud of

What a great Pride week it was in Victoria...

Even more to be proud of

What a great Pride week it was in Victoria.  Every year I find something more to be proud of. My very good friend Kent, an openly gay man who has served with the Canadian Armed Forces for over 25 years, left in late June (missing Pride) to serve in  Kabul, Afganistan for one year. It’s not that many years ago, a gay man would not be openly serving in the forces.  Now they join arms with all shapes and shades of Canadians in helping countries find peace within and with their neighbours.

I know that many in the comminity, including myself, hold such Pride for you and other G.B.L.T.’s  serving us in the Canadian Armed Forces.

Thank you.

Come back safe, everyone.
