Canada’s PM Justin Trudeau celebrated Pride Month by raising the rainbow flag and transgender flag above Parliament Hill, saying that one of his tasks as the country leader is to overcome injustice in all shapes – in part anti-LGBT discrimination, which is unfortunately still rather widespread. The Canadian leader, a strong supporter of LGBT equality, took part in a Pride Month ceremony on Parliament Hill alongside local MPs and LGBT allies. At the event he announced that the government will introduce legislation to make it possible to erase the convictions for Canadians who were found guilty under historical, unjust laws for sexual activity with a same sex partner. The government says the legislation – expected to be introduced later this year – will be another concrete step towards acknowledging and addressing injustices faced by LGBTQ2 communities.
