The Lac La Ronge Pride Parade & Festival happens in June every year to celebrate and push for equality and human rights. Colleagues from Rise Air and Snowbird Aviation Services joined together to support 2SLGBTQIA+ community members through Pride.
2S (two-spirit) refers to a person who identifies as having both a masculine and a feminine spirit, and is used by some Indigenous people to describe their sexual, gender and/or spiritual identity.
