Who we are

Casa Arcoiris is a grassroots organization based in the border city of Tijuana to provide a dignified shelter, food, and basic services to migrating LGBTQ populations. It is made up of activists based in Tijuana who pertain to other organizations and collectives that support the LGBT+ community and displaced/vulnerable people.

Amidst the everyday reality of migration that marks the city’s long history at the U.S./Mexico border, the urgent and continuing needs of LGBT+ migrants traveling either alongside the phenomenon of caravan migration, in smaller groups or individually have become more and more dire, and Tijuana-based activists have been responding to those needs. Through a loose-knit network of organizations, hundreds of LGBTI+ migrants in Tijuana have been sheltered, fed, and provided health and legal services over the course of 2018. Casa Arcoiris was founded in the summer of 2018 by a diverse group of activists based in Tijuana to solidify this collaborative effort to support LGBT+ migrants as they prepare to petition asylum in the United States or Canada, or adapt to new lives in Tijuana or other parts of Mexico.
