pic The goal of the Halifax Rainbow Encyclopedia is to have a page for every person, place, thing and event of relevance to the Q community in Halifax, ever. As of January, 2022 we have over six hundred thousand words in two thousand finished pages, works-in-progress, or article stubs, and about thirty five hundred images and several dozen hours of audio and video recordings.

The Halifax Rainbow Encyclopedia (H•R•E) is designed for easy storage and retrieval of facts, stories, and indexes to the locations of others. Here are some tips for doing research.
