Welcome to Gold Coast Pride + Gold Coast Rainbow Communities, the Gold Coast’s hub for all things LGBTIQA+.

We are a community-based not-for-profit organisation led by a group of passionate and experienced volunteers.


Gold Coast Rainbow Communities is the Gold Coast's leading LGBTIQA+ organisation, and the annual Gold Coast Pride Festival is the crown jewel in our yearly calendar.


In addition to our annual Festival, we provide year-round community-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 here on the Gold Coast.

Gold Coast Rainbow Communities was formed in 2020 and have held two fabulous Gold Coast Pride Festivals in 2021 (Kirra Beach) and 2022 (Macintosh Island).


We host a range of LGBTIQA+ community activities, from sport and social groups to holidays, trans clothes swaps, BBQs, picnics, creative workshops, nature walks, dance parties and other gatherings  - as well 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!
