Marwan kicked off Pride Month at the Pride flag-raising on Parliament Hill on June 1st. Later that week, on Sunday, June 5, he spoke at the 2017 tri-Pride Festival Unveiling at Kitchener City Hall, along with Kitchener Mayor Berry Vrbanovic and colleagues, Raj Saini, M.P. (Kitchener Centre), and the Honourable Bardish Chagger, Minister of Small Business and Tourism, P.C., M.P. (Waterloo). A week later, on Sunday, June 12, the terrible news of the shootings in Orlando brought shock and horror. The following day he stood with all M.P.s as the House of Commons observed a moment of silence in memory of the victims. Marwan is proud that on Sunday, July 3rd, he accompanied Justin Trudeau as he became the first Canadian Prime Minister to march in the Pride Parade in Toronto.
