Pride Month is increasingly a family affair. The Pride celebrations that occur from coast to coast to coast include events for adults, and political actions, but also Family Pride days and parades that can be attended by revellers of all ages.

At the same time, curriculums at schools across Canada are now including discussions about homosexuality, gender identity, and LGBTQ rights. And many kids will have someone in their class who has two mommies or two daddies, or who is transgender—or they may be that student themselves.
