Grand Strand PRIDE
People Respecting Inclusion, Diversity & Equality
Grand Strand PRIDE is raising funds in 2017 to continue our advocacy work in the Grand Strand region of South Carolina. Through your support, we have become a prominent voice of advocacy for the Grand Strand LGBT community. Your support also keeps our programs free or very affordable to the public.
Grand Strand PRIDE continues to grow our newest program, 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.
We will also be hosting a 2017 Grand Strand PRIDE celebration August 24 - 27. Our premier event will be the 2017 Business Expo and Gala, Saturday, August 26th, which will once again showcase the awesome members of the Coastal Business Guild. Please make plans now to join us. For the latest details, visit our website at http://www.grandstrandpride.com/pride.html.
Our oldest and highly popular program, which has been in existence since 2006, is our First Friday Happy Hour, which gives us the opportunity to meet new friends while being visible in the community; changing hearts and minds, one person at a time.
Grand Strand PRIDE is a 501(c)(3) public charity as recognized by the Internal Revenue Service and the State of South Carolina.
Thank you for your support!
