Charlotte Pride’s annual festival and parade are just around the corner. Taking up a full two days of Uptown fun, the event will feature over 150 vendors, the Sunday parade, hours of main stage entertainment and more.
When summer comes around, we are fortunate to have a wide variety of LGBT Pride events to choose from. It’s always fun, and especially so in 2015, when the past year has brought so much good news on the political front. But that is not the case everywhere.
First it was homophile. Then homosexual. After that it was gay. Then it was gay and lesbian. With the additional recognition of the bisexual and transgender communities, our broader community identifier became longer and longer.
Just like the “Wizard of Oz,” the Queen City of Charlotte is bound to have at least a few witches (oops, I mean queens) reigning over the various neighborhoods. Hmmmm… the Queen of Morehead has a nice ring to it. Don’t you think?
