Rainbow Outreach GLBT Center



The Rainbow Outreach GLBT Center was founded in 1997 to help and support the greater Omaha LGBT+ community by offering information and services to the LGBT+ communities. The center was located at 1719 Leavenworth St. in Omaha and offered an information line, community calendar, literature, lending library, and meeting space. The GayZette was published by the center beginning in 1999. The physical location was closed in December 2013 due to declining use and increasing expenses. The center maintained a website and continued as a virtual center for a few years; the final capture of the center’s website in the Internet Archive Wayback Machine is from 2016. The final issue of the GayZette was published in December 2016. The organization was known to have used variations of its names including the following: Rainbow Outreach Resource Center (1997-?); Rainbow Outreach GLBT Resource Center (2004-2007); Rainbow Outreach Metro Omaha GLBT Community Center (2007- ?).
