Also coming soon! Monthly activities for children and their allies - watch here for news of start and place!
How Can We Help
We want to make it easier for our LGBTQ+ community to find the resources they need. If you have any other suggestions for resources that might be needed, please contact us and we will do our best to add them here.
There are a number of mental health counselling services in town. Here are those that have identified as LGBTQ+ friendly.
Coming Soon - In partnership with Integris Credit Union, Financial Literacy classes will be available for our LGBTQ2S+ community.
As well, any LGBTQ2S+ community member wishing to open an account with Integris can take advantage of the Quesnel Pride Society Account Opening and have the first 6 months of fees waived.
Starting January 10, 2023 the first meeting of the first Pflag chapter in the Cariboo. Check out our events page for more details.
In the process of setting up secure online community for Quesnel Pride Society. Within this community we can set up support groups online.

We are sad to announce that the Quesnel Pride Society closed its doors at Our Space effective November 30, 2021. The timing of the pandemic (which forced the closure the day after opening!), the on-again off-again gathering restrictions, the limited mall hours, lack of volunteers, and high cost of renting all factored in to this decision.
All of the artwork in Our Space has been photographed professionally by Mikey Kidd. The photos have been placed in a collage, which in turn will be made into a giant blanket to be taken to the next physical space in the future.
Right now the Quesnel Pride Society is focused on Capacity Building - how do we identify and address the needs of the community, and how do we create a sustainable future for the Pride Society here in Quesnel. So stay tuned! While the physical space may be closed for now, the digital space will still be active!
