The Town of Innisfil is committed to supporting the Two-Spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, gender diverse, and queer (2SLGBTQ+) community. Every year, the Mayor proclaims Pride Month and Fierté Simcoe Pride Month to celebrate the diversity of gender and sexual identities, and to promote safe communities within Simcoe County.

Pride installation at Innisfil Beach Park

Innisfil Beach Park is a little more colourful and inclusive thanks to a new Pride installation in partnership with Innisfil Pride. Located near the front entrance, the Intersex Pride Flag flies year-round to send the message to residents and visitors that in Innisfil, you can walk proudly knowing that you have the freedom to be yourself.

About the flag

Over time, updates to the rainbow flag show the diversity of the 2SLGBTQI+ community. Each colour of the flag holds meaning. The six horizontal colours of the rainbow pride flag represent:

  • Red for life
  • Orange for healing
  • Yellow for sunlight
  • Green for nature
  • Indigo for harmony
  • Violet for spirit

The black and brown chevron represents people of colour, those living with AIDS, and those no longer living. The pink, light blue, and white chevron represents the trans community. The yellow triangle with a purple circle represents the intersex community.

Check out reading lists through the Innisfil ideaLAB & Library on Pride and Intersex and watch a presentation with intersex activist Valentino Vecchietti on Intersex Inclusion and Representation.
