Support and connect with our local LGBTQ2S+ community


PROUD2BE Gender Identity & Sexual Orientation Virtual Event Series
Join Family Services of the North Shore, in partnership with West Vancouver Youth Services, for our PROUD2BE Gender Identity & Sexual Orientation Virtual Event Series. 

Saturday, October 24, 2020 was the first of our four Events, and featured Kas Baker as guest speaker, along with a special viewing of Gina Hole Lazarowich’s film, Krow’s TRANSformation, followed by a Q&A with the cast. 

Upcoming Virtual Event Series dates include:  Saturday evening –  January 23, April 24, July 24 – 2021.

We are excited to bring together parents, youth, and professionals to celebrate and strengthen our diverse LGBTQ2S+ gender non-conforming and allied community.  The Virtual Events Series features guest speakers, panel discussions, support, and entertainment.  These events require pre-registration, details and information for January, April and July will be updated on this page closer to the each event.
