Friday, July 5 2019
18 and under
We are grateful to hold this event on W̱SÁNEĆ Territories as uninvited settlers. Upholding the sovereignty of the Indigenous peoples whose lands we occupy should be at the heart of all Pride organizing
Calling all gays, theys and everyone in between – welcome to the black parade and get ready to panic at the disco!
We are happy to invite you to Sugar, We’re Goin’ Dancing – a Youth Pride dance!
This is a FREE event open to anyone 13-18 who identifies as LGBT+, queer, 2-Spirit or an ally
This dance will be a safer space where you can come with whoever you want, wear whatever you want and be whoever you want to be! This is an event that celebrates diversity – all genders and sexual/romantic orientations totally welcome!
WHAT TO EXPECT:
– amazing music and dancing
– cool photo opportunities
– food and drinks!
– an edgy emo atmosphere (just like you always wanted!)
– a quiet/chill outdoor area if you need a break from the music
– Pride awesomeness for you and your friends!
This is a substance-free event. Please help us make sure we can continue to offer these awesome youth dances for years to come!
Please help us keep this event safe and comfortable for everyone ♥
Massive thanks to Avery and Kira for their hard work on our amazing poster! You two are the best ♥
