Charlotte-based, national non-profit Campus Pride took their LGBT-Friendly College Fair Tour on the road recently. Attendees to Pride Charlotte last year and this year might be familiar with the project. The group hosted similar college fairs for prospective LGBT students at the Charlotte events last October and this August.

In Chicago, Windy City Times reports, 35 colleges from across the Midwest, East and South gathered, including Asheville’s Warren Wilson College.

“It’s really interesting where we’re place[d],” a representative of the North Carolina school told the Chicago LGBT newspaper. “Asheville [ N.C. ] is this liberal mecca in the South. It’s a really interesting community … and we’re definitely known as a very liberal college.”

Campus Pride’s college fairs are held annually in Charlotte, Chicago, New York and Los Angeles, among other locations.
