North Vancouver RCMP are celebrating the end of this year's Pride Month by recreating the Beatles' iconic Abbey Road album cover. "We're calling it 'Mountie Road'," said Sgt. Peter DeVries of the North Vancouver RCMP. "We wanted to do something fun and memorable as we close out this year's Pride Month."

Although Pride Month is wrapping up, every day of the year the RCMP continues to champion equity, diversity, and inclusion, and celebrate freedom of self-expression, both at the workplace and in the community. "We are proud to stand alongside our LGBTQIA2S+ staff and community, and are committed to ensuring the North Vancouver RCMP is a safe space for all people," said DeVries.
During the month of June each year, the RCMP joins the rest of the world to celebrate LGBTQIA2S+ communities and to help lift up the voices of those who've been seeking equity for many years. The RCMP raises the Pride flag at RCMP buildings across the country to show our support.
All staff across the RCMP work to help members of the LGBTQIA2S+ community realize their goals of equality and fairness in many different ways. RCMP employees who are members of the gender diverse community have agreed to talk about their experiences, challenges and successes.
