Who We Are
The Tri-Cities Pride Society (TCPS) was formed in September 2017 to advocate for and serve the LGBT2SQ+ communities in the cities of Port Moody, Coquitlam, and Port Coquitlam. We do so with a mixture of advocacy, social events, and consultation.
The TCPS is run by an elected board of directors. This board is currently consistent of a President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, and 4 Members-at-Large.
The TCPS has 2 types of membership: individual and organisation:
- Individual memberships are by donation and grant the member a vote at general meetings. Donations assist the society in running events and continuing functioning.
- Organisation memberships are by donation and grant 1 vote at general meetings. This type of membership is ideal for organisations for whose goals are closely aligned with the TCPS.
What We’ve Worked On
Coquitlam's Rainbow Crosswalk
The TCPS worked hard to with Coquitlam City Council to bring this beautiful symbol of Pride to the city of Coquitlam – right outside City Hall!
The TCPS rallied the community to show our support of the SOGI & SOGI 123 policy and resource package – an essential tool for educators hoping to help LGBT2SQ+ youth and children.
The TCPS works with all willing organisations and persons to help better the communities and make them safer for the LGBT2SQ+ communities. We will fight to make our communities safer and more inclusive.
The TCPS will work with the community to help them learn what they want and need to in order to help make our communities more inclusive and safe.
Tri-Cities Pride Society acknowledges that it operates on the traditional and unceded territories of the Coast Salish First Nations Peoples. We are fortunate to live, work, and play on the unceded territories of the kʷikʷəƛ̓əm (Kwikwitlem), q̓íc̓əy̓ (Katzie), Qayqayt, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations; these people continue to feel the costs of our occupation of their lands – we strive to fulfill the call of reconciliation as exemplified within the report of the Truth & Reconciliation Commission.
The TCPS has received support from: Spinkey Media, Google for Nonprofits, TechSoup, and Intuit.
