GPN is committed to providing events in a safe and supportive environment for all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. It is GPN's primary purpose to provide LGBT-focused programs and services that enrich the lives of those in our community. GPN seeks to set an example by providing services and programs that are responsive to the needs of the LGBT community.
GPN provides events to a diverse range of individuals and groups for a variety of purposes. These purposes include but are not limited to support, organizing, activism, socializing, networking and rehearsing.
GPN embraces the community’s rich diversity of identities and experiences. It is for this reason that we aim to ensure GPN retains events where everyone feels welcomed. Therefore, no group or individual attending a GPN's event shall engage in hate speech or bigotry of any kind. Engaging in or advocating violence is strictly prohibited. Engaging in illegal activities at events is strictly prohibited. GPN maintains the right to restrict or reject any group or individual whose presence at or use of GPN negatively impacts other groups and/or individuals that use GPN.
GPN is a non-denominational, non-partisan organisation and does not support or endorse activities held at its events. Activities held at GPN's events must neither conflict with nor interfere with GPN-sponsored or GPN-produced programming. When such conflicts arise, GPN programming will be given priority.
GPN is committed to good-faith cooperation and partnership with all individuals and groups attending events and will make all reasonable effort to resolve conflicts when they arise. Should grievances occur, they will be addressed in the manner prescribed in the Terms & Conditions.
