About Us

The Rainbow Support Group SC began in 2013 in a living room in Greer, SC in response to a gay-bashing incident involving a few Upstate LGBTQI+ youth.  We were all saddened when it came to the lack of support and community resources, which caused us to get in motion to provide these things for the LGBTQI+ community. This group started to make sure all LGBTQI+ people know they have a place to go get support, encouragement, fellowship, and to know they are not alone.

Since that time Rainbow Support Group SC has grown to become a community of 1000s from around the world through the power of the internet.  We meet regularly in Upstate South Carolina to offer support to one another, enjoy the fellowship of kindred spirits, and to enjoy fun & games.

We are honored & consider it our duty to give back to the community at large.  Every year we hold several community service oriented operations to give back through various means.  Whether it is through our emergency clothing closet,  providing meals, care kits, and blankets to the homeless or providing backpacks with school supplies and Christmas presents to families in need.  We consider it a blessing to be able to help our community.

We are only able to accomplish these things with the support of our community, our sponsors, our resource partners, and kind individuals like you.

Rainbow Support Group SC is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization.

We believe that great things can be achieved when we all work together.  Together we can change the world!

We Need Your Support Today!

Here at Rainbow Support Group SC we fully understand that racism not only affects but completely undermines the mental health and well-being of not only individuals, but also that of entire communities and societies.  We are fully committed to anti-racism in everything that we do.  This means that we vow to fight against racism in all its many forms, including, individual, interpersonal, and institutionalized racism. We will never give up the fight for equal rights and we will never abandon members of our community by virtue of their race, creed, religion, nationality, gender identity, sexual orientation, or any other status protected by law.
