Spectrum strives to promote understanding of queer issues and acceptance of the queer community through campus and community activities. It exists to create a supportive atmosphere on campus for members of the community. Click for Spectrum contact information or check them out on Twitter or Facebook.

OUTLaw provides an academic and social support network for LGBTQ minorities and their straight allies at the Law School. It also serves to educate the Law School community about legal, political and social issues relevant to our members. This organization is open to all Wake Forest students and faculty.

Kaleidoscope is an organization within the Divinity School that provides both a social outlet for LGBTQ graduate students and education and information on LGBTQ issues, particularly from a Christian perspective, to and for the Divinity School and the greater university. We host and lead one Divinity School Chapel service annually, and usually host at least one meeting or forum to discuss issues germane to the LGBTQ Christian community.  While our group was founded by the Divinity School to meet a need within our School, graduate students from the various Schools are welcome at our meetings.  You can contact the leadership team at:
