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.
Black Prides offers a safe place where people who identify as black and LGBTQ people could have safe spaces to celebrate their unique identities. In North Carolina, Fayetteville, Raleigh and Charlotte have all had Prides focused on the black community.
