Social Media Guidelines

This information is pertinent to comments on Vancouver Pride Society’s social media channels. Posted comments must directly relate to the information and topics of discussion on the post in question.


Comments are moderated, and a comment that falls outside of these guidelines will be addressed as soon as possible.


We reserve the right to remove and/or hide comments that infringe on these guidelines and comments left to protest a removed comment. The views expressed within posted comments do not necessarily reflect those of VPS and its employees.


Comments containing the following will not be allowed:

  • Hate speech
  • Defamation to a person, people, or organization
  • Name-calling and/or personal attacks
  • Spam comments, such as the same comment repeatedly posted on a profile
  • Comments whose main purpose is to sell a product
  • Inappropriate or unrelated links
  • Threats or suggesting committing a criminal act
  • Content or reasoning based on demonstrably false statements and/or inauthentic content or activity
  • Language or content that is potentially harmful, advocates harm and/or incites harm or constitutes a potential threat to public or personal safety
  • Other comments that VPS deems inappropriate or harmful


The Vancouver Pride Society reserves the right to change these Guidelines for Social Media Comments at any time without notice.
