Welcome to Rainbow Toastmasters

Ready for a change? Come join us!

If you’ve ever wished for the confidence to stand up and speak in front of a group, to inspire an audience, to voice your opinion, to be heard, you’re in the right place! Business presentations, wedding speeches, city council meetings, classrooms… the opportunities to speak in front of others are limitless, but how do you build the confidence to do it? How do you learn to write a great speech and then deliver it with savvy? With two words: practice and support. The more you practice, the easier it will get, and with the right support it can be a ton of fun. Soon enough you’ll surprise even yourself.

Rainbow Toastmasters can help you achieve your goals in a casual and fun environment, one that is completely open to your personal stories. Founded in 2005, Rainbow Toastmasters is the Bay Area’s largest communication skills training resource for the LGBT community. We welcome 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. Pay us a visit and see for yourself!

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. We’re serious about helping our members become the best communicators they can be while simultaneously having fun. Rainbow is one of the most respected clubs in the Bay Area, with an enviable list of awards, achievements, and contest winners. The results of our enthusiasm and encouragement “speak” for themselves.

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.
