Calgary Pride Parade, September 3, 2023.

Rainbow Elders Calgary is a volunteer-run, non-profit organization determined to make a significant difference in the lives of 2SLGBTQ+ seniors.

We know that social isolation and loneliness are major issues for aging members of our gay community. Therefore, we work to provide support and friendship by organizing safe social events such as: picnics in the park; coffee socials; evenings out and monthly meetups where folk can chat, be themselves and feel safe.

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

It explains some of our work and some of the issues we are concerned about.

It’s a surprising phenomenon: even after being “out” for decades, seniors feel pressure
to hide their sexuality. A group of aging 2SLGBTQ+ individuals navigate concerns
around housing and inclusion late in life.

Many thanks to the wonderful folks at Great West News who published
our ad in every one of their community newsletters - for FREE!

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.

The Calgary Chinook Fund supports charitable organizations providing services, programming, education, and support for and about the 2SLGBTQ+ community.


We work very closely with Calgary's Centre for Sexuality and graciously thank them for their tremendous support.
