Join the Edmonton Pride Seniors Group to learn more about our group, GLBTQ2+ communities, the history of our communities locally and in Canada, the importance of terminology, and review approaches to inclusion and advocacy. We will endeavor to learn more about your needs and to understand what are the main issues that you, as a GLBTQ2+ senior, face. We invite you to participate in an interactive discussion of what social activities would interest you and what would make life better for you, to allow us to tailor future programs to you needs and interests!
