Pride YMM’s Rainbow Spaces initiative promotes and fosters safer and more inclusive spaces, organizations, and businesses for 2SLGBTQIA+ individuals in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. Organizations and businesses that have taken specific steps outlined by the initiative receive Rainbow Spaces designation and receive public recognition for their commitment to 2SLGBTQIA+ inclusion.
When designating a Rainbow Space, Pride YMM remains accountable to the 2SLGBTQIA+ community that we serve and advocate for. We fundamentally believe that allyship is not a title, but consistent, intentional action and accountability. We also understand that in becoming a Rainbow Space, each organization will be in a process of learning and growth following our training, and that process may include mistakes. Should we receive a complaint from the community about a Rainbow Space, we will be in contact to work with the organization to understand the situation, arrive at a resolution, repair harm, and re-train as necessary.
