University Launches Rainbow Royals

The University recently launched Rainbow Royals, Scranton’s LGBTQIA+ and ally alumni network.

The group’s mission, according to its website, is “to foster continuing connections between Scranton's LGBTQIA+ alumni with other LGBTQIA+ university members and the broader university community. Aligning with our Catholic and Jesuit values, Rainbow Royals will work towards cultivating community and creating a space where all are welcomed and valued. Leaning on the Jesuit ideal of Cura Personalis, we are committed to caring for the whole person of every person. We will create an inclusive environment that will be promoted both on-campus and at our off-campus events.”

The club plans to promote educational, professional, social, and service opportunities and events, as well as the sharing of experiences and knowledge for the betterment of the Scranton community. Additionally, Rainbow Royals will connect with student clubs, organizations, faculty and staff to foster a space that allows for resources, a strong network and community for those who identify as LGBTQIA+ on campus. In a spirit of inclusivity and mutual support, Rainbow Royals welcomes all members of Scranton's LGBTQIA+ and ally alumni community.

The establishment of Rainbow Royals represents the combined efforts of Scranton's Alumni Engagement team, the Cross Cultural Centers, and LGBTQIA+ and ally alumni. Formation of the club exemplifies Scranton's continued support and recognition of all alumni who identify as LGBTQIA+.

More than 50 Scranton alumni have joined Rainbow Royals since its inception, and the group plans to begin holding virtual events soon. To join the club, visit this link. Follow Rainbow Royals on Facebook here and on Instagram here.
