Grand Strand PRIDE

People Respecting Inclusion, Diversity & Equality


Grand Strand PRIDE is the advocacy voice of the local LGBT community.


Grand Strand PRIDE's oldest and highly popular program, First Friday Happy Hour started in 2006 as "the Gay Professional's Happy Hour where EVERYONE is welcome!"   Today it is the largest LGBT happy hour on the Grand Strand and gives us the opportunity to not only meet new friends, but to also be visible in the community; changing hearts and minds, one person at a time. 


​Our newest program is the Coastal Business Guild.   The Coastal Business Guild provides networking, marketing, and educational opportunities to LGBT owned, managed, or friendly businesses in our area.   While many business connections have been made, one of the most successful and popular programs of the CBG has been its quarterly "Lunch and Learn" Educational Series.  Topics include diversity in business, gender identity education, and LGBT legislative updates.  


Check our event page often and make plans to attend the next Grand Strand PRIDE event.
