Who are we?
‘Silver Rainbows’ is a group of older Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual,Transgender & Intersex (LGBTI) people living in the West of Ireland who came together in September 2013 to form an advocacy and support network for members of our community.
Our objectives are
To establish and maintain a network for members of the LGBT community who are 50 years or older, or who can identify with issues affecting people of that age
To provide a forum where members can explore and discuss issues regarding active ageing and accessing services
To work in partnership with the Board of Amach! LGBT Galway Ltd and other relevant organisations to address issues with agencies and service providers
To reduce isolation by encouraging and facilitating social networking and events in a safe environment, and by offering peer support
To promote personal development, facilitate education and raise awareness about LGBT specific needs and ageing
To support and facilitate intergenerational activities
How can you get involved?
‘Silver Rainbows’ is open to all members of the LGBT community in Galway and neighbouring counties who are 50 years or older or who can identify with issues affecting people of that age. You can get involved by coming along to our next event. For details please email us at email@example.com
We look forward to meeting you!
