As we approach the finish line of COVID-19 restrictions and look forward to putting behind us one of the most challenging years in our lifetimes, we reflect on that which we cherish most: Community.
Community: “a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals.”
At The Academy, community is everything. It is what drives us to constantly strive to be the best we can be. It is what has kept going for nearly 40 years. It is a sense of belonging, where everyone is welcome and everyone is valued. Where we lift you up to be the best you can be.
June is Pride month in many parts of the world, a time when we open our hearts to our LGBTQ2S friends, family, and neighbours, and re-affirm our support for diversity, inclusivity and love for all. Pride 2021 will be like no other. It comes at a time when we long for a return to our communities, to be in the physical presence of those that matter most. Where we reconnect with our friends and our families and begin the process of coming back together as a community.
As the restrictions gradually fade away, and our collective excitement builds, we at The Academy are preparing to welcome back old friends and new to our community. To celebrate you and all the ways that you enrich our lives.
