National Day of Awareness of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and Two-Spirit People
Today is the National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and Two-Spirt peoples. Also known as Red Dress Day. #MMIWG2S
As an organization we stand in solidarity and hold in our hearts the grieving families and nations that live and relive this national tragedy. We challenge the government of “Canada” and the justice system to make real changes to start to show Indigenous Peoples that they are a priority.
We are a non-profit organization supporting people who identify on the gender and sexuality spectra. This includes lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer/questioning and two-spirit (LGBTQ2S+) individuals living in the Kamloops region.
Our mission statement is to promote a more flourishing LGBTQ2S+ community and support gay culture in Kamloops. Regardless of how you identify on the gender, identity or sexuality spectrum - we welcome you! We are here to serve the diverse community within Kamloops and strive to advocate on behalf of people who experience discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity/expression. Through our work, we hope to promote equity for all.
We, Kamloops Pride acknowledge that our events and work is held on the traditional and unceded territory lands of the Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc. We take this opportunity to thank them for their stewardship of these lands and to convey our respect for the relationship that they have maintained and cherished with their territory.
