RainbowS (Stockholm University)

Rainbows is the LGBTQIA student organisation of Stockholm University

In 1990 Gaystudenterna was founded at Stockholm University. In 2009, the name was changed to Rainbows in order to include all LGBTQIA identities. Rainbows focuses on students and others at the university who identify within the LGBTQIA+ spectrum and those who question gender and sexuality norms. We want to create a space at the university where LGBTQIA+ students feel welcome and safe. Rainbows also aims to educate students, faculty and others within the university on LGBTQIA+ matters and do activist work. Rainbows is even part of Stockholm University’s Student Union and works together with other student organisations.
Some of our events are separatist although most are open.
