LGBTQ2+

The VUL welcomes players of all genders and sexual orientations!

LGBTQ2+ is an acronym that stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer & 2-Spirit. The + denotes that there are many other identities and communities within the LGBTQ2+ population that are not represented in these six words. 

For more information on terms, see our glossary.


VUL Initiatives 

Ultimate Canada Conference Workshop

In 2018, the VUL and Rain City Ultimate partnered together to run a workshop at the Ultimate Canada Conference called 'How Can We Make Ultimate LGBTQ2+ Inclusive'. About 40 people attended and came up with several ideas on the topics of team culture, league policies, organizational culture and communication. See the google document of notes and add other ideas of your own for leagues and organizers to draw from. 

Pride Campaign

During Pride month in 2018, we showed our support for LGBTQ2+ members and ran a social media campaign featuring LGBTQ2+ members of our community

Trans Inclusivity

In 2017, we made changes to our policies to be more trans inclusive. See the full details on our trans inclusivity page.

LGBTQ2+ Pride Stickers

The VUL teamed up with Rain City Ultimate to create Pride Stickers. Other ultimate organizations may use this design and replace our logos with theirs. We want to see these stickers spread!
