An effort will be made to beef up Hamilton’s Pride Week activities.
City councillors have approved a motion presented by Ward 1’s Aidan Johnson to have tourism and culture staff work with members of the LGBTQ community with a goal of creating a bigger celebration.
Johnson says there’s both a social and an economic argument.
He notes that Toronto reaps significant economic benefit from a well marketed Pride celebration, adding that there’s no reason for Hamilton to miss out. Pride Week is coming up in June.
