Safe Spaces Revelstoke Society was formed in early 2014 recognizing that Revelstoke was a wonderful place to live, but also aware that there are those in our home town, in the LGBTQ2S community, who do not feel safe, accepted or fully included in the life of this beautiful city.
Our goal is to celebrate everyone, and the lives we all live. To be truly open, accepting and welcoming to everyone who lives here, travels here, and who share their lives with us.
At the heart of our Goals And Vision are the following, which we will continually strive for and promote:
Our Priority Actions include the following:
One of our members captured our goals beautifully when she said:
"Invisibility is not the same as integration and acceptance. Visibility is about living OUT, in the open. Free to express ourselves safe from fear, discrimination, judgment and violence."
