Rush Pride Art


RushPRIDE is established to advocate for a supportive and tolerant environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, and straight members of the Rush University Medical Center community.  In keeping with the mission of RUMC, our goal is to educate both the Rush and local communities about issues affecting LGBTQ individuals, particularly those issues that can affect patient care. We organize educational and social events, offer a forum for discussion and support regarding LGBTQ concerns, and provide networking and mentorship opportunities for members.  RushPRIDE welcomes people of any sexual orientation or gender identity.   We hope to foster an environment of open-mindedness, understanding, and empowerment through ongoing education and outreach within the Rush community.
