Making the Annapolis Valley a better place for LGBTQ youth and our allies

Aaaannnnnd… if you’re still looking for more after the Wolfville Pride Events, there are all kinds of things happening in Halifax.

Sadly, unlike in previous years, the Valley Youth Project will not be providing transportation to the parade!  This year, our volunteers have scheduling conflicts, so we won’t be organizing a van.  HOWEVER!  The Halifax Youth Project is decorating a float, and all youth 25 and under and invited to take part. If you want to ride the float or dance your way through the parade in style with other YP kindred spirits, meet at the Halifax office (2281 Brunswick) at noon on July 26, OR head to the marshalling area and hop on there.  You’ll see them… it will say “Youth Project” on the side in big letters.

Want to connect with other Valley youth to meet up, or carpool?  Use the VYP Facebook page to keep in touch.
