In March, we started documenting the lives of LGBTQ people who have died from COVID-19. With over 5 Million positive cases and over 180,000 deaths in the U.S., the pandemic continues to impact the country. A lack of LGBTQ-inclusive data makes it difficult to know the full impact of the coronavirus on our community.
As January’s Women’s Marches showed, there are countless strong and influential women ready to effect change in the world. Locally, Charlotte, too, has some outstanding female leaders. In honor of Women’s History Month, qnotes wants to honor some of the local women who are paving the way for change, acceptance, and pride.
