Pride Week

Pride week graphic reading "proud to be me"

CANCELLED

In response to the rapidly changing situation with COVID-19, the Provincial Health Officer's advice to cancel large gatherings, and UVic's announcement that we will be transitioning from face-to-face to alternative modes of instruction and evaluation for the remainder of this term, the Office of Student Life has cancelled Pride Week 2020 and all associated events. 


March 23 - 27, 2020

The Office of Student Life, UVic Pride and the Gender Empowerment Centre are proud to present UVic’s inaugural Pride Week, in collaboration with multiple campus partners. Join us for a full week of community building programs, workshops, art exhibits and drag performances.

Whether you identify as LGBTQ2SIA+ or as an ally, there’s something for everyone.
