About Us


Pride Squamish is a Nonprofit 2SLGBTQIA+ Registered Society in the Traditional, Ancestral, Unceded Sḵwx̱wú7mesh-ulh Temíx̱w (Squamish Territory). 

Pride Squamish would like to acknowledge that as a registered Society we have a Board of Directors, Committee Members, and Volunteers. The legal structures of non-profit societies are grounded in patriarchal and colonial structures, but we work as a radical collaborative of humans doing this work together as equals. We are committed to our growth as a Society to reflect the progress reflected within our community and decolonizing our practices with each step forward.

Board and Committee members participate in monthly meetings, support community collaborations and efforts, and creating safe spaces year round for our lovely community members to gather, grow and celebrate. Below is a little lit about the current Pride Squamish members volunteering to serve this community.
