What we're about

The Rainbow Community Center (RCC) of Contra Costa County has served the LGBTQ community since 1992. This Meetup group is for folks interested in the activities at the RCC. All activities will be posted on the calendar and members will be able to see all the activities and talk with each other about them.

The Rainbow Community Center of Contra Costa County envisions a society that embraces acceptance, safety and equality for all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

Our goal is to provide a safe, supportive and respectful environment for LGBTQ people of all ages, socio-economic status, races, cultures and religions. We strive to create services and activities that will promote the mental, physical and spiritual well-being of our community by providing professional services, peer support, referral services, social opportunities and educational programs of interest to our community as well as to the community at large.
