The Vancouver Pride Society (VPS) brings together members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Two-Spirited and Queer community, their friends, allies and supporters in celebration! We represent the unique culture and spirit of our community by producing quality, inclusive events such as the Pride Parade and Festival. The Vancouver Pride Society likes to look at what we do as celebrating diversity, encouraging social change and inclusion, and highlighting key individuals who encourage change in our community through the organization of celebratory events.

Gay Pride / Gay, Lesbian, Trans, Bi
We exist as an order of 21st century queer nuns who welcome a broad spectrum of genders, sexual orientations and religious/spiritual traditions. Through humour, irreverent wit and glamorous manifestation, we seek to transform social structures that continue to oppress the vulnerable in our society. Through introspection and community service, we support the spiritual and personal development of our members and those we serve. We honour the ‘sistory’ of the world-wide Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence by working to improve the lives of those affected by HIV. We also honour Vancouver’s present-day reality through work to alleviate and end homelessness, and provide support to groups and projects that might otherwise go unacknowledged. We bring together diverse community groups who are striving towards similar goals. We join with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence around the world through our universal vows to promulgate universal joy, expiate stigmatic guilt and serve the community, our fellow Sisters and the Order of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.
