Laura MacIntosh and Kaleigh Hyde, two Bachelor of Social Work students, undertook practice placements in Durham, England, in the summer of 2011. On Laura’s initiative, her work at an adoptions agency focussed on building the profile, support and services for same sex adopting parents. In the photo above, Laura and Kaleigh work the booth for the agency at Northern Pride, marking the first time the agency had ever participated in any event with and for the LGBTTQI community. Laura is displaying materials that she developed for the agency.
On Saturday, July 23, dozens of students, faculty and staff took to the streets of Halifax to take part in the 2011 Halifax Pride Parade, showing their stripes in support of tolerance and diversity. To learn more about Dalhousie’s participation in the Pride festivities, read the DalNews story.
