A poster that promotes gender diversity was taped over in Etobicoke. CityNews viewer Barry Auguste sent in this photo on July 24, 2017.

Toronto police said no crime was committed after posters promoting gender diversity were defaced.

The posters, created by the City of Toronto and the Black Coalition of AIDS Prevention (Black CAP) under an initiative called Toronto For All, went up during Pride. The campaign focuses on trans youth of colour, who are seen smiling under a slogan: The phrase “My gender lives here” is displayed above their heads, and ends with “not here” written close to their hips.
