There isn't a ton going on officially at Drake for LGBTQ, but there is a thriving community. Two official clubs even that are specific to the law school. There's also a rights center downtown and a coffee shop that is a hot spot that I will show you some time. Also, the Iowa Civil Rights Commission takes interns from Drake regularly and, you know, Iowa is kind of the battleground for such things.
This is one of my passions as well, which strikes people as odd since I'm a thirty-year-old white male who is straight, married, and has two kids. I apparently don't fit the mold. I hope to one day do mostly workplace discrimination litigation and that sort of thing (primarily centered around LGBTQ status, family responsibilities, and disabilities). Maybe someday we'll be in practice together!
