(originally founded as N.O.G.O.)
was established in the spring of 1995 to help bring lgbtq social events
(mainly dances) to the North Okanagan. The proceeds from our dances go
to all manner of charities & non-profit societies which enhance the
lgbt community in the area. NOGLO is totally committed to
providing a safe, harassment free, and fun environment at all the
which we organize or sponsor. This commitment holds especially
for younger gays & lesbians who are just out or in the process of
out. We are also the proud "owner" of an ĎAdopt-a-Roomí at Vernonís
Hospital. NOGLO was an enthusiastic supporter of the annual
Okanagan LGBT Pride Week for many years and added to the celebrations
by hosting various events.
The NOGLO domain has been re-purposed with a different concept and is no longer associated with the NOGLO organization although greatest respect is given for the volunteers who for so many years kept that organization going as a service to the community.
