Our foundation hosts the Calgary LGBTQ+ Refugee Centre; the Calgary Rainbow Railroad Station, settling SOGIESC refugees from outside Canada; and a variety of volunteer run support groups and mentor services. We host the National SOCIESC Sponsorship Fund designed to help sponsor LGBTQ+ refugees anywhere in Canada. We are dedicated to all people of any sexual orientation and gender identity (LGBTQ+ or SOGIESC1), whether they are longtime citizens, or new Canadian refugees, or immigrants.

Note 1. We use LGBTQ+ and Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity & Expression and Sexual Characteristics (SOGIESC) interchangeably. All people have a sexual orientation and gender identity. When we use either term we include lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, two-spirit, queer, questioning, and plus+ as indicating: intersex, asexual, demisexual, pansexual, omnisexual, gender-neutral, genderqueer, pangender, men who have sex with men (MSM), women who have sex with women (WSW), and all the other sexual diversities that we are missing.
