What we're about

WELCOME TO THE RAINBOW CENTER!

Through education, advocacy, and celebration, the Rainbow Center expands resources and safe space for the LGBTQA community.

We are a non-profit resource center open Monday - Friday from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Our center hosts meeting space throughout the week for groups, programming and events. Throughout the year we produce the Tacoma Pride Festival, Out in the Park (Tacoma's official PRIDE event), Queer Ball in addition to the annual Black & White Gayla.

We have big updates to share with you about the new steps we’re taking this year. (https://www.facebook.com/tacomarainbowcenter/videos/1732227243508638/)
As of February 1st, our Wednesday Late Nights program will come to a close. This will allow our staff to take the momentum and lessons learned from our Wednesday Late Nights and put it into bigger, better, and more meaningful programs and events. It’s people like you that drive our programs and our work.
