Alberta Liberal MLA David Swann has issued the following statement in recognition of Calgary Pride:
“I am excited to once again join with Calgarians in celebrating LGBTQ2S+ communities.
“Alberta Liberals have led all political parties in support for LGBTQ2S+ Albertans.
“In 1994 we were the first party to call for sexual orientation to be added as a prohibited ground of discrimination to the Alberta Human Rights Act.
“In 2014 we introduced Private Member’s Bill 202 to make gay-straight alliances (GSAs) mandatory in schools where students ask for them. I was immensely proud of the changes that legislation led to.
“David Khan has continued the proud Liberal tradition on LGBTQ2S+ issues by raising issues such as improving access to hormone replacement therapy, putting an end to conversion therapy and fighting back against homophobic dog whistle politics.
“Calgarians can be proud of the progress we have made and optimistic about the progress we will continue to make. We are all helping to establish Alberta as a safer and more welcoming place for LGBTQ2S+ individuals.”
