Beta Omega Participates In Montreal Pride

August 30, 2013

Beta Omega at Montreal Pride 2013

During the weekend of August 16-18, the Beta Omega chapter participated in Montreal Pride (or as some of the locals say “Fierté Montréal”) for the first time!  A dinner was held on Friday August 16th to kick off the weekend, followed by the Chapter hosting a booth on Community Day on the 17th. Beta Omega then marched in the Pride Parade on Sunday, August 18th.

Beta Omega’s presence in Montreal Pride generated an article in The McGill Daily. An excerpt:

“It is still early days for the brothers, and therefore Beta Omega’s landmark participation in Fierté Montréal could act as a stepping-stone to an even swifter rise in prominence. Echoing one of the chapter’s mottos, “to make our presence known,” Edge said, “One of our goals this year is to get more involved in the Montreal Queer Community, while maintaining a strong presence on campus.”

Kudos to Beta Omega for making their presence make a difference in Montreal!
