South Carolina Pride Movement, located in Columbia, SC, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the needs of the LGBTQ+ community and its partners through educational events, entertainment, community outreach, and celebrations of diversity throughout the year.

SC Pride produces each year Famously Hot SC Pride Festival, Get Lit Nighttime Parade & Concert, OutFest Columbia, and more. The Pride Festival, held in October each year on Main Street, is one of the largest outdoor festivals in the city and the largest LGBT event in the state.


Are you ready to Be?

We’re rolling out our 2020 campaign to BE THE RAINBOW! Last year, we challenged places around the state to BRAVE THE RAINBOW and show their ally-ship with SC’s LGBT+, and this year, we’re challenging ourselves and everyone in South Carolina to BE THE RAINBOW.

Coming soon: Our Pride Passes, featuring the Be logo.
