Events & Activities
Join Rainbow Center as we celebrate the entire LGBTQS2 Community.
Rainbow Center hosts celebratory activities throughout the year, including our 3rd Thursday Community Events, Tacoma Pride Month, Black & White Gayla and many other programs.
Rainbow Center is the host organization for Tacoma Pride, celebrated in the month of July. Tacoma Pride centers and celebrates the LGBTQ2S community while entertaining and inspiring more than 20,000+ community members in the South Sound. Since 2019, Tacoma Pride has evolved from a singular celebrated day to an entire month full of activities and events. Tacoma Pride street festival is held the second Saturday of July every year.
Our annual Black & White Gayla is known to be one of the best nights in Tacoma. Held in November, this fundraiser includes a live and silent auction, entertainment and a dance party, with the proceeds going to support the work of Rainbow Center. With over 500+ people in attendance, the events caters to both the gay and straight allied community members in the South Sound.
Rainbow Center offers LGBTQ2S community events and gatherings every 3rd Thursday. This is an opportunity to come meet other like-minded individuals, engage in fun activities, and build community.
