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.



Where Pride Began

Saturday, May 7, 2016 at 7:00 pm.

At the Legacy Theatre , 101 East Lawrence Ave. ,

STONEWALL is a drama about a fictional young man caught up during the 1969 Stonewall riots. Danny Winters (Jeremy Irvine) is forced to leave friends and loved once when he is kicked out of parent’s home and flees to New York. Alone in Greenwich Village, he befriends a group of street kids who soon introduce him the local watering hole The Stonewall Inn; which is far from a safe haven. As Danny and his friends experience discrimination and police harassment, a rage begins to build. With the toss of a single brick, a riot ensues and a crusade for equality is born.
