Rainbow Union (RU) is an organization of and for people of all sexualities and gender identities. It provides a welcoming and confidential "safe place" to all students: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Straight Allies, Transgender, and those questioning their sexuality and/or gender identity. Created to provide a social and supportive environment for a vibrant population of Drake's campus, RU has become a leading campus organization. The continuing emphasis on programming and education culminates in two annual celebrations: National Coming Out Week and Pride Week. RU persists to support those dealing with issues of sexuality and gender, resists homophobia through example and education, and strives to prevent heterosexism in our lives and on our campus. RU invites all students to join and participate and, as always, makes no assumptions about a person's sexuality in our safe place.
