/R E P E A T -- Media Advisory - Ontario Front-Line Nurses to March in Pride Parade/

    TORONTO, June 27 /CNW/ - Ontario Nurses' Association (ONA) members will
again participate in Toronto's Pride Day celebrations.
    A group of registered nurses (RNs) and allied health professionals, their
friends and allies will join in celebrating equality, diversity and human
rights. The front-line health-care professionals will march in the parade and
have a float.
    Andy Summers, RN, an ONA Vice-President and Chair of the union's Human
Rights and Equity Committee, will join members in the celebrations.
    "Diversity is a high priority for ONA," says Summers. "The Pride Parade
is an opportunity to show ONA's support of its lesbian, gay, bisexual and
transgendered members, but also an opportunity to celebrate diversity in this
city and around the province."

    ONA is the union representing 54,000 front-line registered nurses and
allied health professionals and 10,000 nursing students providing care in
hospitals, long-term care facilities, public health, the community, clinics
and industry. ONA is celebrating 35 years of nursing advocacy - a proud past,
a powerful future.
