Kelowna Pride Society

Kelowna Pride Society (KPS) is a non-profit, member-based organization committed to serving the Kelowna’s LGBT2Q+ community. We create events and offer programs to connect our community and advocate for equity, inclusion and acceptance within the Okanagan Valley and beyond.

KPS is managed and operated by a volunteer board, which is assisted by a team of volunteers from the community. The organization depends on membership,volunteers, sponsorship and patronage to thrive.

The Society does not offer counselling or advice on LGBT2Q+ issues. However, those in need should consult our Community page for resources and local group supports.

Kelowna Pride Society is registered in the province of British Columbia, and is a member of both Fierté Canada Pride, the national association of Canadian Pride organizations, and InterPride, the international association of Pride Organizations.
