Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has launched the WorldPride 2019 Ambassadors competition, ahead of the WorldPride and Stonewall 50 commemorations planned for June.
Local chapters of the Pink Pistols organization can be found all over North Carolina, in Asheville, the Triad and the Triangle. The guiding philosophy of the group is to teach LGBTQ people to defend themselves with firearms. But this ideal clashes with another group, the Pride Fund to End Gun Violence, although both organizations formed as a reaction to the Pulse massacre in Orlando.
