LGBT Vancouver was founded on May 29th 2015 by Tyler Sullivan. We were officially incorporated July 5th 2016, as LGBT Vancouver Society. Tyler started the organization with a vision to create change for this diverse community. The name 'LGBT Vancouver' was used because it was
a way to reference the whole of lowermainland (Burnaby, Surrey, Fraser Valley, New West, Coqutilam etc.) known as Greater Vancouver. The first program LGBT Vancouver launched was a debates program where people could go to open up and share their opinions on any given issues. The vision is to expand the organization so it can act as a resource centre and be able to support every other non-profit organization with funding, event promotion, and the key idea of having all non-profits work together to help achieve LGBT Vancouver's mission.
