Welcome to Jim Deva Plaza!

Located in the heart of Vancouver’s Davie Village, next to the rainbow crosswalks at Davie and Bute Streets, Jim Deva Plaza is a community serving gathering space and home to a variety of events and activities.

The plaza is named after Jim Deva, longtime community activist, founder of Little Sister’s Book and Art Emporium, and advocate for Vancouver’s LGTBQ2+ community. Learn more about Jim Deva’s Legacy, his contribution to the community and his commemorative art piece, The Megaphone.

A safe space, inspired by Jim Deva’s lifelong passion for freedom of sexuality, gender diversity, and the fight against censorship, where LGBTQ people and allies can meet, share ideas freely, dare to dream, and love unapologetically.

Our enviable location has lead to high demand, amazing residential density and wonderful diversity of people, businesses and experiences. Over the past century the three commercial streets of Davie, Denman and Robson connected everything together.
