Rainbow Senders - LGBTQ+ Night and Resources

Welcome Rainbow Senders! This group is for LGTBQ+ folx and allies of all ages and climbing experience levels to find community and expand their climbing skills.

These events take place monthly (check out the calendar for the dates):

  • 1st Friday of the month
  • 6 pm - 9 pm
  • Midtown gym
  • Entry is $12 and includes gear

If it’s your first time with us, please fill out a waiver and we will get you set up with gear and an introductory orientation.  During COVID restrictions, please make a two hour reservation at Midtown sometime during the time slot before you arrive.

When you arrive, look for the table with the rainbow flag!  There are pronoun pins available and often, a group activity is available if you choose to participate. There will be folx available to help you get started if it’s your first time and/or be your climbing partner if you wish.

Other resources:

  • Fundraiser - Artists from the LGBTQ+ community are working on a design to feature on some cool apparel!  Come back and check when this will be available.
  • Climbing gear - We asked gym members to donate non-safety gear they are not using and what we have on hand is available on a firts ask/first serve basis by contacting Caroline

Rainbow Senders is sponsored by Stone Age and also exists outside of it - contact Caroline or the group community facilitator for more information.  Please click here if you want to be added to the Rainbow Senders newsletter.

TransSenders is a gathering that takes place on the 3rd Sunday of every month and is organized after hours specifically for trans and non-binary folx.  Click here for more information on participation. This event is held outside of Stone Age’s regular business hours in order to provide a safe space for folx to try their hands at climbing. Folx of all ages and experience levels welcome!
