The Grand River Rainbow Historical Project was begun in March, 2011. Although our website is still very young, we hope that you will find it an interesting and useful record of the histories of our intertwined rainbow communities in the Grand River area of Southwestern Ontario. We have a big backlog of information yet to be processed, and we are also looking for more source materials. So the information here will grow considerably over the coming year!

And in case you're wondering, we are interpreting rainbow to include, but not be restricted to, the following tribes or varieties: lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, two-spirit, intersex, queer, questioning, fluid, and asexual.

LEGAL DISCLAIMER: This website chronicles events that occurred in earlier, more rambunctious, days. The management at the Grand River Rainbow Historical Project disclaims all responsibility for any accident or injury, whether physical, emotional or mental, incurred as a result of reading the contents here. Please do not attempt anything described in these pages without proper supervision. Appropriate footwear is advised at all times.
