OUR PURPOSE

To be an objective source for news, information, events and resources for the LGBT community in Southwest Florida, including Lee County, Collier County and Charlotte County. To promote organizations that serve the LGBT community and promote LGBTQ-friendly businesses. We are not tied to one specific LGBT community organization so we can serve as an all-inclusive resource. We include and support all LGBT groups. A portion of our proceeds are donated each year to LGBT organizations. Donations have been made to Pride SWFL, Naples Pride, GET Network and the Southwest Florida Community Foundation LGBTQ Fund.

WHAT WE DO

We share news, information and events through an annual print publication, a website and an app. The Rainbow Pages business directory and resource guide for the LGBTQA community is published annually. It is currently in its third year of publication and it’s growing! The website and app are continually updated and the Rainbow Pages Resource and Business guide is printed once a year. This high-quality glossy publication is available at more than 100 locations throughout Southwest Florida. For more information, to place an ad or include your organization, email info@rainbowpagesswfl.com.

MEET THE LEADERSHIP

The Rainbow Pages takes a team of people to gather and update information, spread the word, write stories, compile events and information, take photos, design and distribute the print magazine, send a monthly newsletter and keep the website and app updated. We appreciate all those who help us with this labor of love!
