The purpose of Rainbow Grads is to serve as a social network for the community of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and queer graduate and professional students of the University of Washington.

Ok but what does that mean

We are the only RSO at UW specifically for queer grad and professional students. We have social events that you should check out because we are friendly and always want to include more people. Some of our recent events have included: picnic at Golden Gardens beach, Halloween Club Crawl, Old Gay Movies film screenings, happy hours, going out on the hill, attending SIFF, attending SLGFF, attending HUMP!, and more.


RainbowGrads began as an ad hoc task force created by the GPSS Executive Committee to address the underrepresentation of LGBTQ Graduate and Professional students at the University of Washington. The Task Force became a Registered Student Organization (RSO) in September of 2011. Since that time, our membership has grown to over a hundred people from all over campus.
