​Grand Strand PRIDE in Myrtle Beach

Previously know as Takeover Grand Strand.  

take·o·ver -- ˈtākˌōvər,  noun:  an act of assuming control of something. synonym: merger

TAKEOVER Grand Strand is assuming control to right a wrong in society, not only in our community, but across our state. We are positively merging the gay community with the straight community.  TAKEOVER Grand Strand is the advocacy voice of the local LGBT community.

TAKEOVER is the act of a bunch of fun-loving LGBT folks and our allies getting together and making a space ours for the evening.

TAKEOVER Grand Strand started in 2006 as First Friday Happy Hourthe Gay Professional's Happy Hour where EVERYONE is welcome!  Once a month, a location was announced, people showed up, and our family grew. 

Today, we are expanding beyond the happy hours, enjoying a night out at the theatre and other venues.  Of course we never really TAKEOVER a place, our host locations are always working with us to make sure everyone attending has a great time.  Be sure to check our event page often for our next TAKEOVER and make plans to attend.  Click here for more on what is TAKEOVER Grand Strand.
