Beginning in June each year, SFU commemorates Pride Season—a time to celebrate and honour the contributions of 2SLGBTQIA+ communities together.

The university is committed to fostering a culture of inclusive excellence where all feel safe, welcome, respected and appreciated. In collaboration with 2SLGBTQIA+ faculty, staff, students and alumni, a number of important milestones have been reached over the past year including SFU's first participation in the Vancouver Pride Parade as an institution and the re-launch of the SFU Queer Collective

Below, you’ll find information about a number of exciting activities and events to celebrate Pride 2024. You’ll also find 2SLGBTQIA+ resources and supports from SFU and beyond. Be sure to check back as this page is updated throughout the summer.
