Grand River Rainbow Historical Project

The goal of the Grand River Rainbow Historical Project is to document the history of the various rainbow communities in the Grand River region of Southwestern Ontario.

The scope of the Project is intended to be inclusive of all types or tribes of rainbow communities, including, but not restricted to lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, two-spirit, intersex, queer, questioning, fluid, and asexual tribes.

Geographically, the designation Grand River has been used to make it clear that the communities of Waterloo Region and Wellington County are both included, whilst leaving open some leeway to include communities in other areas of Ontario that are adjacent to the Grand River or some of its tributaries.

Digitized materials, chronologies and other detailed information are located at the Grand River Rainbow Historical Project Website.

Announcements about newly digitized archives and new exhibits and displays are located at the Grand River Rainbow Historical Project Facebook Page

The Grand River Rainbow Historical Project is maintained by the Grand River Rainbow Historical Society, an action group of SPECTRUM – Waterloo region’s rainbow community space.
