We’re very proud to have the main image designed by a BGC friend and local artist, Emmitt Elliott. This design is their interpretation of the Progress Pride Flag, originally created in 2018 by Daniel Quasar to represent Inclusivity, Progression, and Visibility. The Progress Pride Flag acknowledges Trans folks, LGBTQ2S+, and People of Colour by including the Trans Flag (pink, blue, white) and black and brown stripes within the Pride Flag to increase visibility of marginalized Queer communities.
The online store will be open until Sunday, July 10th at 8pm. We hope to have orders ready at their pick up locations the week of July 25th. You will receive an email confirmation of your order, and of when your order is ready for pick up. If you have any questions, please contact Mandy at [email protected].
It’s important to BGC to make these shirts as accessible as possible to all who would like one. BGC is supplementing the total cost to bring the price down to $10.00 per shirt. If you know someone who would like one but is unable to pay the cost, please connect with your supervisor or Club Coordinator. Don’t miss your chance to get your very own BGC Pride Shirt!
We're looking forward to wearing these shirts during Vancouver's Pride Festival and throughout the year to show our commitment to creating an environment where gender-diverse staff, kids and youth feel safe, welcomed, valued and respected every day.
