Pride UBC Collective is an AMS resource group that offers educational and social services dealing with sexual and gender diversity to the UBC community, including but not limited to students, staff, and faculty. Pride UBC provides support and information to those who self identify gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, two-spirit, asexual, queer, questioning, intersex, those who do not identify and allies; assists people who are coming out; supplies a forum for dialogue about sexuality and gender identity; holds social events, and educates the wider UBC community about the variation in human sexuality and gender identity. Members of the group come from diverse backgrounds and everyone is welcome regardless of sexuality or gender. Come find us in the SUB, room 245C in the Resource Groups Area.
- The group offers a library and resources for people trying to understand their sexuality and gender identity.
- The group holds regular discussion groups on a variety of topics relating to sexuality, gender identity and the experiences of queer and trans people.
- Pride UBC organizes OUTWEEK every February, which includes public displays, talks, films, and social events, with the intent to educate the UBC community about the issues and concerns of our community.
Because the group brings together people with common concerns and experiences, it facilitates discussion and connections with queer, trans people and allies. Pride UBC also has connections to campus resources and the wider queer community in Vancouver and may be able to provide referrals to an applicable group.
