The Keele campus ceremony will take place at 11am in Vari Hall Rotunda with speeches, cake and refreshments, while the Glendon campus celebration will start at 3:30pm at the main flag pole by York Hall.

In addition, there will be a York University table at the Pride festivities in downtown Toronto Saturday, June 30 and Sunday, July 1 – booths B29 and B30 – on Church St. north of Gloucester. Volunteers are welcome and should e-mail aweigt-bienzle@glendon.yorku.ca for more information.

Meet between 10am and 11am at the corner of Bloor and Church streets (look for the TBLGAY banner or YFS flag). After 11am walk down Rosedale Valley Road until you find the float.
