Mission Statement

The mission​ of The Gray Rainbow Foundation is to offer social and quality of life enhancement programs to gay and bi-sexual men, as well as men questioning their sexuality, who are over the age of 50.

The Gray Rainbow foundation has partnered with Nu Towne Saloon on its latest initiative, the Nu Hope Program.  The Nu Hope Program is specifically targeted to those members of the Nu Towne Community who are facing astronomical hardships and are in need of assistance.  The Nu Hope Program will give members of the Nu Towne Community a resource to tap into in an effort to restore their hope and pull themselves out of desperate situations.  The program would be utilized as a last resort after all other options open to the person in need have been exhausted.

The Gray Rainbow Foundation Origin

The Gray Rainbow Foundation came about as a result of speaking with gay men over 50 for the documentary film project, Inside The Gray Rainbow.  While filming the project in anticipation of turning 50 himself, Executive Director of The Gray Rainbow Foundation, Michael Coleman, found common themes in the struggles of the men he was speaking with.  Some of the stories with respect to issues surrounding loneliness, body image, legacy, as well as the struggles of men in their fifties coming out and coming to terms with their sexuality were really moving.
