Welcome to DAISSI!

DAISSI (former GLOSSI) is a non-profit society for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Questioning people with Allies on Salt Spring Island.


DAISSI has the following mission:

  • to undertake educational outreach services on LGBTQ issues for the community at large
  • to provide opportunities for fun and socializing
  • to offer referral services to individuals who need support and comfort
  • to generally help encourage a positive and visible LGBTQ presence in the community

There are events to enjoy, justice issues to work on, committees to join and jobs that need doing. We celebrate Pride with a weekend-long festival on the weekend following Labour Day every September. Board meetings are held every month. We welcome your participation in any aspect of the society.
