UR Pride Centre

Permanent URI for this community

The UR Pride Centre for Sexuality and Gender Diversity is a non-profit LGBTQ service provider for the University of Regina. It is run by a group of volunteer directors from the University of Regina community (predominately students), and employs an Executive Director. Because UR Pride is the only funded human service agency for queer people in the Regina Qu'Appelle Health Region, it is called on to provide services for that entire region.

Our Mission
To provide and promote health, wellness, and social support for University of Regina students, alumni, faculty, staff, friends and community at large who feel marginalized on the basis of their perceived or actual sexual and/or gender orientations and/or identities.

Our Vision
We Envision:

  • a community where people are free from marginalization and social and political prejudice because of their sexual and/or gender identities;
  • a healthy and positive Queer community where there are many opportunities for social interactions;
  • a Canada-wide queer university community that shares resources;
  • a community where all people have access to educating themselves on queer issues to alleviate discrimination driven by ignorance.
