After an extensive consultation process spanning the last year and a half, members of the organization formally known as G.L.O.S.S.I. Gays & Lesbians of Salt Spring Island Society voted by a wide margin at our AGM on April 30th to change the Society’s name to DAISSI Diverse and Inclusive Salt Spring Island Society. We announce this name change with profound honour and appreciation for our organization’s rich and important history under the GLOSSI name, and with heart-filled celebration of this new name that boldly encompasses the vast diversity of the community we represent.
Our thanks to all who participated in the consultation process, the Town Hall meeting, and the vote at the AGM. Most of all, our deepest gratitude to all those who have worked over the years to make GLOSSI the thriving and welcoming organization it has become. We look forward to the many opportunities for us all to build on that proud legacy as we shape what DAISSI is and does in our community. As always, we combine our hearts and voices to support one another, to work and celebrate together, and to live with pride in who we are.
Outgoing GLOSSI President
