How to locate the UNBC Pride Centre


1. The bus loop is were the city bus drops the students off. 

2. When you reach the bus loop it’s usually a safe bet to follow the students that get off. you will walk down a path way. When looking at the bus stop bench you are going to want to go left toward the path. When walking up the path that is on the right off of the sidewalk you will see the admissions building on the right and on the left is the NUSC building thats the building you need. If there are no students and you drove yourself/was dropped off by someone with a license. If you were dropped off there is one of two routes you can take both of which lead you to the NUSC building, it’s the building closest to the road.

3. upon entering the building you will see on your left Degrees Coffee shop and directly in front of you a sign that shows an arrow pointing to the left with Pride Centre listed among a few other things. 

4. Go left. you will reach almost the end of the hall and see a set of stairs tucked away on your right. Go up the stairs.

5. When you reach the top of the stairs you will see CFUR 88.7 FM that is the university radio station. Turn left and walk down the hall.

6. Next to CFUR is over the edge it is the university newspaper. Keep walking you’re almost there!

7. You will pass two rooms which are occasionally occupied.

8. On your right you will see the Canadian Rainbow flag.

9. If the door is open come in! if it’s closed check the schedule and see when it will be open. On thursdays and fridays Ellen(me) the practicum student is there from 9 AM to 5 PM and she would love visitors!

10. CONGRATULATIONS! you;’ve reached the UNBC Pride Centre where everyone is accepted and welcome :)

PS. I promise I don’t bite. I’m introverted so it takes a while for me to get comfortable with people so I promise I’m not mean!

A POST FROM THE FRONT ENTRANCE OF THE SCHOOL TO THE PC WILL BE COMING SOON… i just have to figure out how I’m going to make it work with 10 pictures….

Being out means doing what your grandmother told you to do, which is not to lie.

End of the semester

Hi everyone, so I just want to introduce myself. My name is Margaux and I am taking over the “online experience” for the Northern Pride Centre Society. You are going to be seeing quite a bit more posts from this Tumblr. I am still really inexperienced with all of this new-fangled technology (what can I say? I’m 24, three-year olds have more skills than me) so please be patient if things look weird or I don’t reply as I should. 

I am getting really excited for the New Year. Not only am I returning to UNBC for pre-medical studies BUT the Pride Centre is also getting ready for some exciting events as well! These will be

-An open house to kick off the beginning of the semester

-Weekly discussion groups

-A practicum student! (not an event, but exciting nonetheless)

-The annual Drag Show

I hope that everyone has an awesome break over the Holidays, get some rest and get ready for the new year! 

All I want for Christmas is a Lady Gaga singing toothbrush

Trans third-grader wins right to use bathroom of her choice

gaywrites:

After changing schools within her district, a transgender third-grade girl in New Hampshire will be allowed to use the women’s restroom and wear girls’ clothing.

Janson Wu, an attorney with Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders who represented the New Hampshire student, told the CBS affiliate that schools need to have policies in place to protect transgender and gender-variant youth, in addition to comprehensive antibullying policies.

“I think as the environments become more and more welcoming to transgender and gender-variant youth, we’re going to see a lot more students  coming out,” Wu told CBS. “And that’s something that schools and parents will need to be prepared to deal with. Children often have difficulty having schools respect them for who they believe they are. If a transgender girl wants to be able to wear feminine clothes to school and be addressed as a girl, oftentimes we see schools feeling a fair amount of discomfort around that.”

As the Advocate points out, it’s nice to hear about this kind of thing when we so often hear about trans kids being shamed and humiliated by both kids and teachers at school. Good for this girl and the educators who did the right thing.

call me kuchu- documentary on homosexuality uganda bill

The award-winning film will be screening at the Vancouver International Film Festival on September 27th, October 1st, and October 5th

 Uganda, a new bill threatens to make homosexuality punishable by death. David Kato - Uganda’s first openly gay man - and his fellow activists work against the clock to defeat the legislation while combatting vicious persecution in their daily lives. But no one, not even the filmmakers, are prepared for the brutal murder that shakes the movement to its core and sends shockwaves around the world.
