It’s that time of the year when the LGBTQ community sets out to celebrate Pride Month. Since its early days, when Pride was observed only in June around the anniversary of the Stonewall Riots which occurred on June 28, 1969 in New York City, it has now crossed over the boundary and is celebrated throughout the summer and fall months, with more events scattered throughout the remainder of the year.
To keep the tradition going, here is a list of the celebrations taking place all over the Carolinas. Some last one day and others span a week with other pre- and post-events happening in tandem with the main event.
Charlotte Black Gay Pride
Charlotte Pride Festival & Parade
Catawba Valley Pride
Blue Ridge Pride
Port City Pride
Triangle Pride Parade and Festival
(formerly NC Pride)
What Happens on the Beach, Stays on the Beach
South Carolina Black Pride
Grand Strand Pride Expo & Gala
Famously Hot SC Pride
Upstate Pride SC
