#CBA Pride on Global Pride Day

Rainbow flagSince numerous Pride celebrations have been cancelled due the COVID-19 pandemic, a ‘Global Pride’ event has been planned by Pride organizations all over the world for Saturday, June 27, 2020. 

The CBA Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Community (SOGIC) Section has aligned itself with this date to organize a national photo campaign in celebration of CBA Pride. Drawing inspiration from the Ontario Bar Association’s Rainbow Tabs initiative – a printable, wearable sign of Pride - this national photo campaign seeks to celebrate the LGBTQ2SI community and the work of the SOGIC Section, and engage the legal community to share in this pride.


Celebrate the SOGIC Section and the LGBTQ2SI community by participating in the campaign on Saturday, June 27, 2020.

Here’s how:

  1. Post your own photos on your social media pages. 
    • Head on over to the OBA Pride page to download a set of their printable rainbow tabs. These are worn as a symbol of lawyers’ and the Courts’ openness toward the LGBTQ2SI community.
    • No printer? Don't worry - on campaign day you can use our camera frame options to take a photo with a digital Rainbow Tab Necktie: 
    • When posting, make sure to:
      • Tag the CBA:
        • Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn: @CanadianBarAssociation
        • Twitter: @CBA_news
        • Use the hashtags #CBAPride, #Rainbowtabs, #SOGIC 
        • Don’t forget to also tag your local Branch and use any Branch Pride hashtags
  2. Follow the hashtags on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and share, retweet, repeat!
