Stories and Educational Materials from Under the Rainbows

The Queer Story Archive is an ever expanding collection of personal experience stories from everyone under the rainbow and the people who love us. With over 140 stories you’re sure to find someone you can relate to.

Discussion-based workshops derived from the personal experience stories in the Queer Story Archive. Gender Ally is our first workshop series, supporting trans, Two-Spirit and gender non-conforming inclusion and promoting Allyship practices. Our latest workshop Generational Allies focuses on issues faced by aging LGBQT2I+ seniors and elders.

We maintain Resources listing for Victoria and Vancouver BC, Canada. We need your help and welcome your input on expanding these listings, so please submit recommendations from your area via our contact form.

Latest News: Generational Allies is moving along nicely.

The online survey has wrapped up and we are now starting to schedule our focus groups – hoping to start in mid-February. If you’re over 55, identify under the rainbow and you’re interested in sharing some of your knowledge and experience, send us an email. Let us know how you identify and which group you think you’d fit best in (IE: Lesbian, Two-Spirit, Non-Binary, Gay, etc.) We’d especially like to hear from you if you identify as Two-Spirit, Trans or Non-Binary/Gender Non-Conforming.

Thank you to those of you that have done the survey and volunteered for the focus groups. If you already told us you want to be part of a focus group, we’ve sent out an email invitation last week – if you know you’re on the list and didn’t get the email – check your junk folders, or get in touch with us and let us know you still want to get involved.

We’ve heard from a number of people from all over the rainbow and we’re excited about how the whole project is progressing. Everyone has a wealth of experience and insight and we can’t wait to bring all that into the project. We know the stories we’re going to uncover are eye-openers and they will make for compelling workshops. We’re looking forward to hearing from you, xo Lulu
