PROUD2BE & Pride

Support and connect with our local LGBTQ2S+ community


PROUD2BE Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation Conference 

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-diverse and allied communities, and is open to children, youth, families and professionals. 

PROUD2BE Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation Events  

Our PROUD2BE Events feature speakers with lived experience, professional panel discussions, workshops and support for gender-diverse, gender-questioning, and LGBTQ2S+ children, youth, their families and professionals.  It’s a community where you can learn, ask questions, get support and connect with LGBTQ2S+ folks, families and allied communities.
