In celebration and remembrance of this past pride month, this infographic timelines key historical events in, and rights gained by, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, and Two-Spirit (LGBTQI2S+) community in Canada and its implications for NATO. In recent decades, significant progress has been made to ensure that the LGBTQI2S+ community has the same democratic rights to equal opportunity, such as the right to serve in the military and the legalization of gay marriage. While tremendous strides have been made, there is more work to be done to eliminate injustices and discrimination towards LGBTQI2S+ community in Canada and around the world.
