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

Our Mission

take·o·ver -- ˈtākˌōvər,  noun:  an act of assuming control of something. synonym: merger

TAKEOVER Grand Strand is assuming control to right a wrong in society, not only in our community, but across our state. We are positively merging the gay community with the straight community.

TAKEOVER is the act of a bunch of fun-loving LGBT folks and our allies getting together and making a space ours for the evening.

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.  Click here for more on what is TAKEOVER Grand Strand.
