Welcome to Rainbow Toastmasters

FUN!… We’re serious about it!

Founded in 2005, Rainbow Toastmasters is the Bay Area’s largest communication skills training resource for the LGBT community. Rainbow welcomes everyone, regardless of sexual orientation, and we take pride in the fact that our membership reflects the diversity that is our home of San Francisco.

At Rainbow meetings you’ll meet friendly, creative people committed to supporting each other in overcoming the jitters, building their self-confidence, polishing their presentations, and expanding their technique – and having a great time in the process! We’re serious about helping our members become the best communicators they can be while simultaneously having fun. Visitors are always welcome. No need to register, just show up! Our meetings are typically followed by dinner at a local restaurant, to which all members and guests are invited.

Rainbow is one of the most respected clubs in the Bay Area, with an enviable list of awards, achievements, and contest winners including the reigning District 4 Champion of the Toastmasters International Speech Contest, Gina Grahame. Rainbow is distinctive in its enthusiasm, encouragement and sociability. Needless to say, the results “speak” for themselves.

All are welcome! Come join the fun! Rainbow Toastmasters is open to the public and guests are always welcome to attend our meetings free of charge. No need to register, just show up! We meet every Thursday from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. Please arrive by 5:55 pm
