Come reclaim Pride in a safer space for Two-Spirit, Queer, Trans, Intersex, Lesbian, Gay, Black, Indigenous, People of Colour (2SQTILSGBIPOC) to celebrate Pride in the Downtown Eastside! Featuring Two-Spirit artist Norine Braun, hosted by the 2SQTILGBIPOC Alliance and the Anti-Oppression Network, join us for music, performance, & poetry!

We acknowledge that this event is being organized on the occupied, traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples – specifically the sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) nations. We also acknowledge that acts of systemic colonization and genocide against Indigenous folks are currently taking place in an ongoing manner within institutions, power structures, and language use. We must partake in recognizing our positions and complicity in settler colonialism on these stolen ancestral lands.
