UR Pride is excited to start our older adults’ group for 2SLGBTQ+ members (ages 55+)! Funded by the City of Regina and the New Horizons for Seniors Program, the 55+ Club will be providing peer support and referrals to senior folks in Regina, holding 55+ Advisory Council meetings every two months and connecting with community organizations to build a more robust and inclusive community!
We’re currently seeking 55+ Advisory Council members. If you’re interested, contact email@example.com!
We also host regular 55+ talking groups on the first and third Wednesday of every month at 7pm via Facebook.
To register for these groups, contact Mirtha, the seniors coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org!
If you are an senior and would like to sign-up for any of our senior specific programming, please follow the link below and fill out the form!
55+ Club Program Coordinator
Mirtha Rivera (she/her) was born in the capital of Santiago, Chile, where a military coup overthrew the elected national government in 1973. Mirtha came to Saskatchewan as a political refugee with her husband and young son in November 1975. The cold weather didn’t freeze her creative spark, and she continued her organizing work in the Chilean, women’s immigrant’s and arts communities. She is a singer, musician, writer, political activist, animal-lover, and mother of two grown sons. She and her compañera began their relationship in 1989, lobbied for LGBT rights (including the right to marry) before 2005, and married in 2010.
Intergenerational Support Program
The Intergenerational Support Program is a program aimed at pairing 2SLGBTQ+ youth (under 30) with 2SLGBTQ+ older adults in our community.
Youth volunteers will offer much needed support to older adults through things like:
- Picking up groceries
- Teaching about technology
- Doing shovelling or yard work
- So much more!
We’re looking for youth volunteers to help support this project! If you’re interested, please fill out the form on this page.
If you’re an older adult seeking support, contact Mirtha at email@example.com or call us at 306-519-4733.
