Death is a heavy topic that all of us would rather not think about. So how do we celebrate a day dedicated to remembering violence and death in our community?

Organized under many names over many years, we now know them as the Pride Collective, a resource group fuelled by the very same motivation of their founders: to create and maintain a space for lasting community at UBC.
Announced in a statement today, the Vancouver Pride Society (VPS) has revoked the university’s presence at the annual parade due to UBC’s “decision to provide a platform for transphobic hate speech.”
