Announcing our first Kingston Pride Ambassador

Emrys De Sousa with Kingston Pride Inc Chair, Ruth Wood

On Monday, June 11th, Kingston Pride and all in attendance were very proud to meet and announce the very first Kingston Pride Ambassador, Emrys De Sousa.  Please join Kingston Pride in congratulating Emrys!

You will see Emrys this Saturday, June 16th for the annual Kingston Pride Parade.  They will act as the Grand Marshal.

Kingston Pride would also like to thank runner up Ian Burns (Rowena) for being a very strong advocate of the community.

Both advocates were very passionate, respectful, and spoke very well.  It was a very good contest which should continue in the future.

Below is Emrys’ short bio.  Please make sure to say hello to them this weekend!

Emrys De Sousa Bio

Hi, my name is Emrys De Sousa! I am 18 years old, and I am a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community.  I am pansexual, and I identify within the umbrella term of Non-Binary (specifically Demigender, in this case, Demi-boy). I’m an avid consumer of LGBTQ+ media (television shows, movies, novels, music etc.). I am also a  barista at Starbucks, and have organized Pride Month for our Kingston stores for this year!  I’m passionate about giving back to the LGBTQ+ community, as I have found the strength to be open about who I am through my friends, mentors, and allies in the community. I want to be a part of the support for LGBTQ+ people of Kingston and continue to advocate for tolerance and acceptance!
