The Chair of the University of British Columbia's Board of Governors privately grumbled that UBC had given itself a "black eye" after the university was banned from Vancouver's Pride Parade for green lighting an "alt-right" event on campus.

UBC's administration faced blow back after agreeing to allow a far-right speaker to deliver a talk attacking SOGI 123, BC's LGBTQ-inclusive education initiative. Shortly after, Vancouver's Pride Society banned UBC from its 2019 Pride parade.

PressProgress previously reported UBC's risk management team actively monitored an "alt-right" group that was planning to show up to the event — as well as faculty members who publicly criticized administrators about their handling of the event.
