Happy Pride month, y’all! We’re so excited to be celebrating this June with our LGBTQIA2S friends, whether they be campers, staff, alumni, or others in our beloved camp community! We hope you’re finding ways to celebrate too, and to promote and raise awareness around Pride!
You may have seen that we recently added a *new* Pride sticker to our store, designed by our very own Communications Coordinator and digital artist extraordinaire, Hydra. These fun transparent stickers can go anywhere and everywhere- your laptop, a binder, notebook, travel mug, or my personal favourite: your water bottle!
We’re about to order some brand new stickers this Pride month- some that are double-sided, perfect for windows! Do you recognize this flag? It’s called the “Progress Pride Flag,” and it was originally created by designer Daniel Quasar in 2018. It combines the rainbow stripes of the pride flag with black and brown stripes to represent LGBTQIA2S People of Colour, as well as the colours of the Transgender pride flag (baby blue, pink, and white). We added some Kintail flare to show that Camp Kintail affirms and warmly welcomes people of all genders and sexualities. Stay tuned- these flag stickers are soon to be seen on windows around the site!
