As Egale continues to offer virtual programs for 2SLGBTQI communities throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, Season Two of our hit web series, Rainbow Table, is well underway!

Rainbow Table is a virtual space where 2SLGBTQI seniors and allies can connect during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. This space provides a platform to engage in important and relevant topics that impact our communities. With exciting guest speakers and useful resources, Rainbow Table strives to give 2SLGBTQI seniors and allies a space that is truly their own, and acts as a go-to for support, resources, and community engagement; in areas like health, legal rights, activities, and more! 

Catch up on past episodes, like our Season 2 kick-off with Dr. Samir Sinha and Dr. Gloria Gutman, as they discussed COVID-19 Facts and Fears.

Our next LIVE episode airs tomorrow - Wednesday, March 17 @ 12 PM EDT / 9 AM PDT / 1 PM ADT. Join us on Facebook Live or YouTube Live as our guest panelists, Major (Retired) Kathryn Foss, and Chair of the Board of Rainbow Veterans Canada, Todd Ross, discuss Rainbow Veterans and Trans Inclusion in the Military.

Join our Facebook Group if you haven't already, to connect with over 850+ 2SLGBTQI seniors and allies from across Canada.
