News of the Day


The Coalition of Rainbow Alliances (CORAL) is an umbrella association that promotes a sense of kinship within the organizations and individuals in central Illinois that provide services or actively support the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender communities, their families and friends.

Created as a “grass-roots” organization in 2000, anyone who affirms their support of the GLBT community can join CORAL. CORAL has no membership dues and shows its support through planned events throughout the year. Its fund raising efforts go to sponsor events that foster GLBT community. Events include special interest programs, the annual Pride Picnic on the third Saturday in June, and the annual GLBT Thanksgiving dinner is on 3rd Saturday of November.


Come and join us for the 36th annual LGBT Pride Picnic at Lincoln Park shelter #7 ( just south west of the Nelson Center, the shelter with the fireplace & restrooms). CORAL will supply the main dishes. Those attending are asked to bring a dish to share if they can. So envite your friends and come on out, socialize, have a few laughs! Hope to see you all there!
