Rainbow Pages

SPECTRUM frequently receives requests for information about 2SLGBTQIA+-friendly or owned businesses, so we provide the Rainbow Pages Directory. 

The Rainbow Pages exists both as a searchable online directory and an annual community publication that includes articles as well as the directory listing. If you'd like to be listed please email us at

Want to be listed in a future edition of the Rainbow Pages print publication?

Basic listings in the directory are free! Email us for details.

Ad space is available for a fee which helps to support SPECTRUM's operations. All ads are printed in full colour.

Grand River Rainbow Historical Project

Scan of Out! Vol 1 from December 1978
Celebrating the lives and times of rainbow folk in Grand River countRy

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 rainbow communities, including, but not restricted to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, two-spirit, intersex, queer, questioning, fluid, and asexual communities.

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.
