U of T Sexual Diversity Studies award recognizes CUPE's work to promote equality

CUPE National President Paul Moist, joined by members of the Pink Triangle Committee, accepted the first annual Citizenship award from the Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies, in a ceremony at the University of Toronto on February 7th. "I am very proud of the work of our union, our activists and our members over the years, to promote the rights of lesbians, gays, bisexual and transgendered people," said Brother Moist in accepting the award on behalf of CUPE. CUPE was recognized as an international leader among labour unions in advocacy on sexual diversity. CUPE requested that half of the $5,000 award be donated to EGALE and asked the Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies to keep the balance to strengthen their ongoing work.
