A new phase for Comox Valley Pride

  • Jan. 26, 2018 3:30 p.m.

The Comox Valley Pride Committee has officially become a legal society. The organization is looking forward to encouraging and celebrating the LGBTQ2+ community in the Valley.

A board of directors has been established and is moving forward in planning for 2018.

The mission of the Pride Society of the Comox Valley is: To unite the Comox Valley Pride community, to be visible and to celebrate diversity.

Comox Valley Pride has as its primary initiatives:

•communicating with government, community and corporations to discuss LGBTQ+ related issues in the community and workplace;

•serving as a resource for youth focused programs and service groups – advocating on behalf of LGBTQ2+ youth in areas where they are not being fairly acknowledged or represented;

•contributing to the community as a resource and as active members of society.

With these new developments, Comox Valley Pride is looking for volunteers to support ongoing efforts to unite the LGBTQ2+ community, increase their visibility, and to celebrate diversity in the Valley.

The society will continue to celebrate the local Pride community with a variety of activities during Pride Week in August.

Support is welcomed from anyone who wishes to support the cause, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
