The goal of this guide is to be a source of information and services available to the LGBT community of the Columbia and Midlands regions of South Carolina. We also have a resource guide specific for the needs of people in the trans community (medical providers, name change legal advice, etc.). This list is comprehensive but may not be exhaustive. If you see we have missed a local resource or you have a service you would like to advertise to the Midlands LGBT community, please email
