Rainbow Elders Calgary is a non-profit, volunteer-run organization.

Our mission is to advocate for 2SLGBTQ+ seniors
and connect with our 2SLGBTQ+ youth.

We invite you to join us as we make major differences in the lives
of both young and older members of our queer community.

The wonderful people at Calgary's Spotlight Film and Television
Productions have created an absolutely amazing documentary about us!

Many thanks to the good folks at Telus for their support.
It’s a surprising phenomenon: even after being “out” for decades, seniors feel pressure to hide their sexuality. A group of aging LGBTQ2+ individuals navigate concerns around housing and inclusion late in life.

Historic Moment: Within just a few months of being created, Rainbow Elders Calgary
members proudly march through downtown Calgary in the city's Pride Parade, September 2, 2018.

The Calgary Chinook Fund supports charitable organizations providing services,
programming, education, and support for and about the LGBTQ+ community.


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.
