Positive Space Alliance

The Positive Space Alliance was formed in the spring of 2003 to improve the climate at Vancouver Island University for LGBTQ+ students and employees. At the inaugural meeting a number of issues facing LGBTQ+ students and employees were identified: the use of negative language towards gays and lesbians in public spaces on campus, a lack of a campus community, invisibility of LGBTQ+ people and issues on campus, and the need for safe places where LGBTQ+ students and employees can be open about their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Our first project is a Positive Space campaign. Once our campaign is successfully launched we plan to undertake further initiatives.

The Alliance is made up LGBTQ+ students, employees and heterosexual allies. We welcome new members, whether you want to assist with the Positive Space campaign or want to get involved in developing and planning new initiatives.
