Gold Coast's leading LGBTIQA+ organisation
Dedicated to inclusion, diversity, creativity and community
Who are we?
Welcome to Gold Coast Rainbow Communities, the Gold Coast’s hub for all things LGBTIQA+.
Gold Coast Rainbow Communities is the Gold Coast’s leading LGBTIQA+ organisation. We are an incorporated, not-for-profit, community-based, gay- and gender-diverse-led organisation. We host a diverse range of LGBTIQA+ community events, from sport, leisure and wellness activities to day trips, BBQs, picnics, parties, yacht cruises - and the annual Gold Coast Pride Festival!
We host numerous community activities around the Gold Coast, all year round.
From tennis to BBQs to our Trans Clothes Swap events, all are welcome. Come and say hi!
At Gold Coast Rainbow Communities, our sponsors are vitally important to us, and we value the active engagement of our sponsors with our LGBTQIA+ communities. Our sponsors enable us to hold more events, make our events more accessible and allow us to pay our staff, artists, and creatives.
Contact us today to become a sponsor.
ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF COUNTRY
We acknowledge the Aboriginal and TorresStrait Islander peoples of Australia, the traditional custodians of the lands and water. GCRC respectfully acknowledges the Kombumerri people of the Yugambeh language region, who are the traditional owners of the land and waters on which we meet, work and play. We pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging; we affirm their ongoing connection to and care for country; and we recognise that sovereignty was never ceded.
ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF OUR ELDERS
We pay our respects to those amongst the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and intersex communities who have worked to support the improved health and wellbeing of their peers, children, families, friends, and country. We honour the elders in the diverse communities of which we are a part and we celebrate the extraordinary diversity of people's bodies, genders, sexualities, and relationships that they represent.
