Stelly's Daily Buzz- June 17, 2024



Monday June 17th, 2024




This PRIDE month, did you know that:

  • The #Pride flag was commissioned by San Francisco city supervisor Harvey Milk – one of the first openly gay elected officials in the US – to make a flag for the city’s upcoming Pride celebrations.
  • Montreal held its first Pride march in 1979, on the tenth anniversary of the Stonewall riots. Today, Montreal Pride is attended by millions and is now one of the largest Pride celebrations in the francophone world.


We are celebrating National Indigenous Peoples Day at Stelly's today.
