Rainbow Table is a virtual space where LGBTQI2S seniors can connect during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.

The space provides a platform to engage in important and relevant topics that impact our community. With exciting guest speakers and useful resources, Rainbow Table will strive to give LGBTQI2S seniors a space that is truly their own that acts as a go to for support, resources and community engagement in areas like health, legal rights, activities and more.
