This week we kick off one of the biggest, brightest and most colourful festivals in our city: Pride London.

Every year, Londoners come together to celebrate our differences while promoting an inclusive, accepting and welcoming community.

The 11 days of Pride include comedy nights, film nights, the outdoor festival in Victoria Park, the Pride Awards and of course the Pride Parade. Hundreds of people participate in the parade including dozens of City of London employees. This year will be no different.

The Pride flag was raised throughout London, at Western University, Fanshawe College and the police department. The flag will be raised and in my office this weekend before going up at City Hall on Monday.

The organizers of this festival have done an exceptional job of building it into a citywide celebration filled with events. I would like to thank every organizer, volunteer, participant and performer for making Pride London Festival a positive experience for everyone.

Inspiration Fest is another festival happening on The Green in Wortley this Sunday. There will be entrepreneurs, workshops and speakers to build relationships and inspire one another.

I hope to see you there.

Sincerely,
