Sunday in the Park with Pride Society (SPPS)
SPPS is a registered non-profit society dedicated to creating community for LGBTQ2 (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, two-spirit) youth on the Sunshine Coast.
The Society pursues this goal by producing Sunday in the Park with Pride (an annual outdoor picnic in celebration of LGBTQ2 Pride), Read Out Loud (an all-ages literary event), and other all-ages and youth events and programs throughout the year, including three monthly youth drop-in groups: an LGBTQ2 youth group, an all-ages LGBTQ2 “drop-in community centre,” and an all-ages Transgender Mentorship & Support Network. These programs provide tools and support for queer youth, in accordance with their needs and requests.
