PROUD2BE & Pride

Support and connect with our local LGBTQ2S+ community


PROUD2BE Gender Identity & Sexual Orientation Events

Each fall we typically host the annual PROUD2BE conference, presented in partnership with West Vancouver Youth Services. This province-wide event brings together youth, parents, and service providers for activities, panel discussions, workshops, entertainment, and clinical services. It’s a thoughtful weekend designed to support and connect our diverse LGBTQ2S+, gender non-conforming and allied community, and is open to children, youth, and families.

This past year, 2020-2021, we adapted our in-person conference to a Virtual Event Series, featuring topics, speakers, panel discussions, and experiences to continue to support and connect with families, youth, and service providers, until we are able to meet together in-person again.

Stay tuned for upcoming PROUD2BE events in 2022!
