  Our Lois on Global TV - August 30, 2019


Lois Szabo is the only surviving member of Calgary’s first underground gay club. It was March 1970 when Szabo, now 83 years old, and a group of friends were pioneering a path to the gay rights movement. They called it Club Carousel.

Survey Results

Rainbow Elders Calgary was an important partner in a community-led project: Housing and Support Needs for Aging in the LGBTQ+ Community.

The study, published by the SHARP Foundation in partnership with MRU, suggests seniors across the city are worried about being an open member of the LGBTQ community if they have to move to a long-term care or assisted-living facility.

In the spirit of respect, truth and reconciliation, Rainbow Elders Calgary would like to acknowledge that we live, work and play on the traditional territories of the people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta, which includes the Blackfoot Confederacy (comprising the Siksika, Piikani, and Kainai First Nations), the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda (including the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations). This land is also home to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III.
