Advocacy. Affirmation. Activism. Affirming Connections seeks to foster these values in our faith communities and in our city.
Coming soon - online sharing resources and populating a lending library. Work is beginning to create an accessible database of resources, activities, workshops, speakers, and book/film/articles pertaining to inclusive faith community and affirming work. These will be publicly available to all people through this website. We will also have a physical lending library for books/films to borrow in the Calgary area.
Skipping Stone Foundation - Supporting and empowering trans and gender diverse youth and their families.
Rainbow Railroad National - Helps LGBT people escape state-sponsored violence around the world.
Rainbow Elders Calgary - Rainbow Elders Calgary is an enthusiastic brand new group of LGBTQ+ folk dedicated to strengthening the ties and connections between different generations of LGBTQ+ citizens in Calgary while also being strong advocates for LGBTQ+ seniors.
Canadian Moms Embracing Diversity - Is a safe space for mothers of LGBTQ kids (of any age) to find: support as we navigate the, sometimes confusing, arena of LGBTQ issues and community; solidarity with other Canadian moms experiencing similar joys and concerns; safety in a closed group where only members see your posts and no one shares outside the group.
