The Peel District School Board (PDSB) said with Pride Month approaching, it will continue its commitment to sexual minority identities and celebrate and affirm them.

“Memo sent to all @PeelSchools staff in preparation for Pride Month backlash from parents,” said former Ontario high school teacher Chanel Pfahl in a Thursday tweet.
PDSB Superintendent of Equity, Indigenous Education, School Engagement, and Community Relations Lisa Hart and Executive Lead-Human Rights Jasmine Dunn said in a letter when addressing sexual minority identities and issues, staff need to apply an intersectional lens.

“To fully understand an individual’s experience based on their identities, we need to acknowledge the impacts of intersecting systems of oppression and privilege given our social context,” said Hart and Dunn.
