Sid Lee Collective & Rainbow Railroad are Honoring Those Who Can't Celebrate

During the Toronto Pride parade on Sunday, June 25th, the Sid Lee Collective and Rainbow Railroad will be distributing half-mast rainbow flags to raise awareness for the LGBTQ persons who can't celebrate their identity.

As there are more than 70 countries around the world that have laws that continue to discriminate against LGBTQ persons, the half-mast flags will function as a sign of respect and acknowledgement of them.

Jeffrey Da Silva, Executive Creative Director of the Sid Lee Collective in Toronto, explained the need for the campaign by saying, "For years, we’ve been able to show our Pride here in North America. But there are still people all over the world being killed just for being who they are, and loving who they love."
