Return of the Rainbow is McGill University's homecoming event for current and past students, staff, and faculty who identify with 2SLGBTQIA+ communities. This annual celebration began in 2001 as an opportunity for queer alumni to return and (re)connect with members of the university campus.
This year, the Return of the Rainbow will also be serving as the Opening Ceremony to McGill's Queer History Month. The goal of Queer History Month is to celebrate and highlight the history and achievements of 2SLGBTQIA+ communities at McGill University and more broadly in Montréal, Québec and Canada. Through a series of screenings, panels, workshops and community events, Queer History Month aims at raising awareness, advancing education and increasing the visibility of 2SLGBTQIA+ communities by recognizing their history and contributions, building bridges and bringing together McGill students, staff, faculty, alumni and Montreal community members.
