CONTRE L’HOMOPHOBIE RELIGIEUSE

CFI Canada has been a long-time supporter of LGBT rights, and a participant in pride parades across the nation. This year, CFI Montreal marched in the Montréal Pride/Fierté Montréal parade. Our message, “CONTRE L’HOMOPHOBIE RELIGIEUSE” (STOP FAITH-BASED BIGOTRY), is a reminder that most of the barriers held up against LGBT equality are religiously motivated.

Montreal Pride 2013

CFI-Canada has been a long-time supporter of LGBT rights, and a participant in pride parades across the nation. In Montreal, CFI has walked in Fierté Montréal parade since 2010.

Our motto, “Stop faith-based bigotry,” is a reminder that most of the barriers held up against LGBT equality are religiously motivated, as highlighted by the recent battle to get publicly funded Catholic schools to allow GSA (Gay-Straight Alliance) clubs.

This year, we are partnering up with Concordia Freethought and Humanist Student Association to show CFI’s support for the LGBT community. We invite CFI members to join us with your friends and family to celebrate and defend equality!
