PFLAG Vancouver is holding a fundraiser on Thursday, July 9th from 6-10pm at the Junction on Davie Street to support our yearly operating budget which include costs associated with our support meetings and crisis/information phone line as well as our Pride Parade Entry.
$15 gets your a burger, bag of chips and a sleeve of Bud! A substantial portion of that cost goes directly to PFLAG Vancouver, so you can help us and have a fun evening at the same time.
Entry subject to capacity
We will also have a toonie toss, silent auction, balloon pop, and door prizes!!!!!
In addition to our primary goal of supporting families and friends, PFLAG Vancouver also strives to advocate for social change in the community. The theme of our fundraiser is "Not Just Pink For A Day" because LGBTQ2+ children are still the most bullied children in schools and we know it's important to remember that more is needed than just Pink Shirt Day. Despite recent policies adopted by the Vancouver School Board which help in supporting queer and trans children, we recognize that there is still work to do in ensuring that this policy is here to stay and in making sure that other school boards across the Province adopt similar policies and PFLAG Vancouver will be there to fight for our children.
So please wear your brightest, most fantastic pink outfit to our exciting fundraiser, we hope to see you there!

The 2015 Vancouver Pride Parade Theme is here! This year, the Parade Committee has selected the theme of Gender Super Heroes for our annual celebrations. Gender Heroes reflects the diversity of our community, and the need for people to have role models that reflect and inspire.
Growing up, who inspired you to be Proud- was it a flamboyant superhero, an out family member, an LGBTQ2+ icon? Be that hero this year, and inspire new generations to come out and be Proud. Pride is for everyone, and the 2015 Vancouver Pride Parade will reflect that diversity and inclusivity.
Pride Grand Marshals
To inspire people this year and reflect the diversity at Pride, the Parade Committee selected Roan Reimer, Michelle Fortin, and Romi Chandra Herbert to be this year’s Pride Grand Marshals. The Parade Committee selected the Grand Marshals because of their outstanding leadership in the LGBTQ2+ Community and because they are Gender Super Heroes in their own right.
Stay Safe at the Parade
