About us


Our mission
We're here to provide an inclusive, safe, fun, engaging campus environment, and bring representation to students of diverse genders, sexes and sexualities at the University of South Australia. Our predecessor club UniSA Pride started in 2010, but after a period of inactivity it was revived in late 2015 as the University of South Australia Rainbow Club. With a small but dedicated committee and some lofty goals, we’ve worked hard over the years to build our reputation as a club that wants to improve queer student services and events at UniSA by advocating for:

βœ”οΈ A queer voice in USASA student representation
βœ”οΈ Access to appropriate medical and sexual health advice & referrals to queer-friendly organisations
βœ”οΈ Autonomous spaces on campus for queer students to relax in a safe environment
βœ”οΈ Counsellors with training and specialise in providing counselling to queer students
βœ”οΈ Gender-neutral bathrooms and toilet facilities on all campuses
βœ”οΈ Inclusive university policies to protect students and staff from discrimination
βœ”οΈ Maintaining an Ally Network of queer-friendly staff members who can provide support to queer students

We're 100% run by queer students, so we understand the sensitive nature of the issues that you may have experienced such as:
❀️ Coming out as queer
🧑 Discrimination from staff and students
πŸ’› Finding like-minded friends
πŸ’š Personal, moral, and religious conflict
πŸ’™ Questioning your gender identity and sexuality
πŸ’œ Relationship challenges
We can provide a connection to appropriate services such as QLife, but we're also happy to answer queries and concerns via email or social media DMs. We understand that not everyone would like to be personally identified; we always respect people's privacy and confidentiality. A useful list of university and external services are provided in our brochures downloadable here (also available in Arabic, Mandarin and Spanish). It's okay if you’re not open about your sexuality or gender identity - you're still welcome to attend our events. Let us know if you'd like more info about an event and we'll do everything we can to make it a comfortable experience.
