SC Pride Movement has been voted “Best Activist Group or Effort” by Free Times readers in Columbia for the fourth year in a row. Despite the swing of conservatism sweeping the Palmetto State, SC Pride still managed to beat out even the crazy tea partiers, who came in as runners-up.

SC Pride Movement presents the annual SC Pride Parade and Festival and works as a pseudo-umbrella group for others like the Harriett Hancock Community Center and Rainbow Radio.
