Our mission is to unite and amplify queer voices and their allies in the community to effect positive change on important issues that makes a lasting difference. Our objective is to enhance the lives of 2SLGBTQ+ seniors, recognizing their unique needs in the areas of health, housing, and community in the Okanagan area. We acknowledge that we are located on the unceded traditional lands of the Okanagan Syilx People and we endeavor to do our work through the lens of decolonization.
Supporting 2SLGBTQ+ Seniors

We are committed to learning about the diverse needs of 2SLGBTQ+ seniors in the areas of health, housing, and community in the Okanagan area.

Our initial focus in this area will be on fundraising to enable a research project specific to housing needs.

We have also established the Kelowna 50+ Pride Network to support a social network of peers.

Where We Stand

We do our work being grounded in our right to self-identify, to be accepted as full citizens with inherent worth and dignity, and a belief in our ability to contribute value to society without the need to conform to cisgender heteronormative roles. It is from this place that we create the space for our community to fully realize these rights.

Alliances

We believe that together we can achieve more. Many voices speaking together will be heard. If you or your organization would like to support our efforts please contact us.
