Chosen Family Day: Celebrating New Recovery Pathways

Each year, the third Monday of February is Family Day in what is colonially known as British Columbia— a day where folks have the day off from work and school to spend time with their loved ones. This year, Vancouver Pride Society, Last Door Recovery Society, and VMF are teaming up to put on a free event that celebrates our Chosen Families. 

Bring your loved ones to the VMF Winter Arts Hub for an afternoon of Drag Storytime, drag performances including a kids activity space with free face painting and balloon art. Witness the Chosen Family lived experience panel, where they will share their stories of recovery from mental health issues, addiction and gender-based violence, and sexual orientation discrimination. View interactive art exhibits, and the Recovery Day Overdose Memorial Tree and make your Family Day worthwhile.

This event is co-presented by Last Door Recovery Society and VMF Winter Arts.

ASL is available by request at all Winter Pride events. Deadline for booking is January 18, 2022.
