“Safe Space”’ as defined in Oxford Dictionary:

Noun. a place or environment in which a person or category of people can feel confident that they will not be exposed to discrimination, criticism, harassment, or any other emotional or physical harm. Example: "school must be a safe space for LGBT students"


SYV Pride adds to the definition above to include the warm embrace, celebration, and acceptance of the LGBTQ+ community and other unrepresented or marginalized groups. 

To be included in the Safe Space Directory, the business or organization must: 

  1. Support SYV Pride’s mission of creating a safe, supportive, and empowering home for LGBTQ+ members in the Santa Ynez Valley.

  2. Visibly and proudly display that they are a “safe space”—this could be a flag, a sticker, social media presence, etc.

  3. Support SYV Pride’s Annual Parade and Festival – participate, promote, donate!

We are proud to be launching a Safe Space Directory on our website and would love for your business or organization to be included!
