DECLARATION OF SUPPORT
Part of the application for participation in the Victory Pride Society Pride Parade and Festival for 2017 is a declaration of support for the queer community. This is an agreement between the Victoria Pride Society and all *participants. This declaration asks each participant to uphold the values of the organization, and not act in a manner contrary to those values.
The mission of the Victoria Pride Society is founded on empowerment. We empower those who are—or think they might be—gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, two-spirited, or intersex. We continuously strive to empower our friends, allies, and community at large.
SAFE SPACE POLICY
Victoria Pride Society hosts events where everyone is responsible for maintaining a space that strives to be safe for all *participants. Safe space means everyone at the event be free from all forms of oppression and anything that can harm us or limit our wellbeing. This includes expressing opinions in a respectful manner and respectful of other’s right to do the same. We may not agree in our opinions, but we agree to proceed with best intentions and assume the same by others.
Victoria Pride Festival is a family inclusive event. For this reason, we ask all *participants to refrain from actions and images that are excessively violent, sexually explicit, or disturbing. Our standard is not to limit self-expression but to ensure that the context in which it occurs is appropriate.
Victoria Pride requires all *participants to commit to these guidelines. We encourage anyone to approach the executive board with questions regarding the above or if they feel that any pride event is contrary to our commitment to making our spaces safe.
*Participants include but are not limited to organizers, performers, volunteers, parade entrants, vendors, spectators, and ticket holders.
