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, and the Pride Festival is the crown jewel in our yearly calendar.


In addition to our annual Pride Festival, we provide year-round community-focused events, information, resources, pathways, education and advocacy. We believe in the value, validity and visibility of same-sex-attracted and gender-diverse people, and are committed to providing a platform for the rainbow community on the Gold Coast.

We host a range of LGBTIQA+ community activities from sport and wellness events to day trips, holidays, BBQs, picnics, yacht cruises, creative workshops, nature walks, drag queen trivia and bingo nights - and our annual Pride Festival, featuring Australia’s very first Pride Parade on the beach. 

Everyone is welcome in our rainbow community.

 Be sure to come up and introduce yourself at our next event - we'd love to say hello!
