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.


Kelowna Pride is a catalyst for building and celebrating the strength, equality, dignity and self-determination of the LGBT2Q+ community in Kelowna and throughout the Okanagan.

We are committed to excellence in execution and the continuing improvement of all programs and events. We value and support individuals, families and allies, and we build partnerships across communities.
