On April 28, Charlotte Pride and Charlotte Black Pride issued a joint statement canceling this summer’s Prides. The statement was not a surprise, but the fact that the two organizations issued it together was noteworthy.
Pride events in Charlotte grew out of the activism of the 1970’s, such as the short-lived Charlotte Gay Alliance co-founded by the late Don King in 1972, and a chapter of Dignity, organized in 1977, and later changed to Acceptance to expand its diversity and outreach.
