Administrative history

Founded in 1995, the Nova Scotia Rainbow Action Project (NSRAP) is a non-profit advocacy organization that strives to provide a coherent voice for gay, lesbian, bisexual, two-spirit, trans and queer people throughout Nova Scotia. NSRAP has met every three months since January 1996 and was officially incorporated in February 2000. It played a key role in the Halifax Rainbow Health Project and continues to work on trans health issues, advocating for provincial funding of gender confirming surgeries and the rights of 2SLGBTQIA+ elders in long-term care. NSRAP has participated in numerous human rights cases involving same-sex rights and was instrumental in bringing marriage equality to Nova Scotia.
