Next week is Pride Week in Barrie.
President of Barrie Pride, David Bradbury says Canadians , in general, seem to be more open minded in some cases…moreso than in the United States.
Case in point: the current debate over which bathroom transgenders should use.
Bradbury says , locally, this seems to be a non issue.
There are a week full of events planned all of which will be family friendly including the Pride Parade on Saturday June 11th.
He expects over 1 thousand people to take part.
It is not restricted to those who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered.
Mayor Jeff Lehman will raise the Pride flag Monday at city hall.
