It’s Victoria Pride Society’s second Youth Pride Kick Off Party! Organized by the VPS Youth Leadership Council and VPS’ Youth Engagement Committee. Follow on Instagram yyj_youth_pride!
LGBTQ2* and Ally youth 18 and under, come be a part of this FREE event!
This year we are hosting the party in the main Fairfield Rec Centre building. Doors at 7:00pm but if you want to help set up, feel free to come at 6:30pm!
What to expect? At this multi-room party, we’ll have music, food and beverages, clothing swap, craft tables (button making, clothing graffiti, patches…!), chill room, outdoor space, and a Drag Makeup Workshop. We’ll finish the night with a variety show of both youth and seasoned performers!
Victoria Pride Society hosts events where everyone is responsible for maintaining space that is safe for all participants. Safer space means everyone at the event is free from all forms of oppression and anything that can harm or limit our well-being. This includes expressing opinions in a respectful manner and respectfully accepting others’ rights to do the same.
VPS kindly asks for your assistance in making this a substance-free space, please. ♥
The facility is accessible by ramp and there is a wheelchair-accessible bathroom on the main floor. All bathrooms are gender-neutral.
There will be amplified music in 1 room but volume level will be respectful of the community environment.
Bus route #7 goes to the location. FREE bus tickets are available upon request.
Safe Space Info:
This event will be attended by volunteer youth workers and safer space/harm reduction workers.

We acknowledge that this event is being hosted on Lekwungen territory, for which we are very grateful. We also appreciate and commit to continually reflect on our role in learning and receiving guidance on how to do our work on these lands in a good way.
