About “Rainbow of Macau”

Rainbow of Macau is the first pro-LGBT and sexual minority organisation in Macau. It aims to improve social status, livelihood and convenience of LGBT communities in Macau.

Following the government’s announcement to remove “same-sex cohabitants” from domestic violence legislation in November 2012, the Macau LGBT Rights Concern Group (LGBT Macau) was established in December 2012 and organised the first Rainbow Equality Parade which marked the start of LGBT rights campaign in Macau.

The Rainbow of Macau was officially registered in April 2013. The founders of the Macau LGBT Rights Concern Group, who are also the founding members of the Rainbow of Macau, agreed to the annexation of the Macau LGBT Rights Concern Group to the Rainbow of Macau.
