Rainbow Coalition

Rainbow Coalition

The Rainbow Coalition is an inclusive, student-led coalition that advocates for the rights, safety, and overall health of the LGBTQIA+ community at Arizona State University. We are working to create an ASU that celebrates individuality, connects intersectional communities, and enables people to thrive as they are.


Upcoming events

Throughout the academic year, Arizona State University dedicates months and weeks to honoring Sun Devils’ heritage. The Rainbow Coalition leads the celebration of Pride Weeks each October and April, as well as Trans Awareness Week each November. To learn how you can be involved in planning the celebration of our rich, diverse community of ASU students, connect with our coalition.


Club Spotlight

Barrett LGBT+ Club

Barrett LGBT+ Club

The Barrett LGBTQ+ Club is an academic, professional, and advocacy-based forum for LGBTQ+ students on Barrett’s Tempe campus. We want our members to be empowered in their sexuality and gender identity within their education, careers, and lives. We support students in this way by taking action in the face of institutional injustice, connecting them with LGBTQ+ ASU professionals, and creating networking and professional development events for LGBTQ+ students.
