Caucuses are semi-autonomous, sub-groups in Pride that are intended to create safer spaces for individuals whose experiences of systemic oppression, as a member of a marginalized group within the Collective, affects their interaction with the Collective’s space or activities. The area of marginalization may or may not impact how an individual interprets their trans, queer, two­ spirit, or intersex identities. More info about caucuses can be found in the UVic Pride Collective’s Caucus Policy [link: here ].
