The new Quail Creek Rainbow Club, an LGBTQ social network for residents of Quail Creek, held its first social distancing meet and greet at the Madera Clubhouse parking lot Oct. 1. Club members celebrated the Quail Creek Board of Directors official club approval, discussed club objectives and by-laws, and kicked off October Tucson Pride month. The Rainbow Club’s goal is to provide opportunities for members to meet/greet and celebrate living in Quail Creek, Green Valley, and Tucson. Club members plan to meet up for group activities such as golf, pickleball, hiking, biking, travel, crafts, discussion groups, community outreach, and other social activities.
During the first meeting, the Rainbow Club raised $125 for the Tucson Lesbian and Gay Alliance. Commonly known as Tucson Pride, this all-volunteer and nonprofit organization produces and promotes cultural, educational, and recreational events for the LGBTQ community in Tucson. The Rainbow Club also submitted a short video they created called “Hello from Quail Creek,” which aired during the Tucson Pride 2020 Virtual Festival on Oct. 24.
Planning is underway for future club events, activities, and Zoom group meetings. For more information about the club, or to be added to the club GroupWorks site, contact Qcrainbowclub@gmail.com.
