Who is a Kelowna Rainbow Woman?

Kelowna Rainbow Women started in July of 2019 and has grown to over 335 members since then. The group was borne of the idea that the women of Kelowna, residents and/or visitors, need a sense of community and the opportunity of a full calendar of events happening within the city that include more than just pub nights.

So, who is a Kelowna Rainbow Woman? Anyone who identifies as a woman within the LGBTQ2+ community some (genderqueer, two-spirited) or all of the time. Kelowna Rainbow Women (KRW) is an all-inclusive, zero-phobic, chill and relaxed group.

KRW is NOT a group strictly for cis-females who identify as lesbians.

Kelowna Rainbow Women is a young endeavor, and we are continuing to grow while we support each other in an online community where we share personal stories, news events, and other things that matter to us.

WomXn’s Night Fills the Lounge


The inaugural WomXn’s Night at Friends of Dorothy Lounge on Mar 10th was a huge success!

Wall to wall womXn!

This event had an early start at 5:30 but within minutes, the place was packed. So much energy! So much fun!

Old friendships were rekindled. New friendships were made. Laughter, drinks, and excellent food were had.

If you missed it, you’re in luck. Kelowna Rainbow Women will be having a WomXn’s Night at Friends of Dorothy Lounge the first Tuesday of every month!

Watch Facebook for details of next month’s WomXn’s Night!

Women’s Self-Defense Workshop

This 1 1/2 hour workshop will be run by a professional instructor who is passionate about ensuring women are equipped with self-defense techniques.

This is an LGBTQ2+ friendly space. That said though, I have arranged for this workshop to take place while the gym is closed. We will have the place to ourselves ensuring a safe environment.

The fee is $20/person unless we reach 10 or more women, in which case the fee will be dropped to $15/person.
