Our Mission

"Advancing acceptance of the Grand Strand LGBT community through increased visibility"

TAKEOVER Grand Strand started in 2006 as First Friday Happy Hourthe Gay Professional's Happy Hour where EVERYONE is welcome!  Once a month, a location was announced, people showed up, and our family grew. 


Today, we are expanding beyond the happy hours, enjoying a night out at the theatre and other venues.  Of course we never really TAKEOVER a place, our host locations are always working with us to make sure everyone attending has a great time.  Be sure to check our event page often for our next TAKEOVER and make plans to attend.
