Pride Wireless will contribute a portion of receipts to an anti-HB2 initiative, Triad Health Project to receive benefit funds, MCC Winston-Salem is holding a drag bingo event and the Guilford Green Foundation is hosting a Halloween-themed fundraiser.
Social justice and HIV/AIDS conferences have been slated, NCAAN has announced its award winners, an LGBT-friendly folk festival heats up in Greensboro, an OUT at the Movies film screening is upcoming and Pride Winston-Salem T-shirts are on sale.
For decades, drag has been a staple of the LGBT community. Dating back to the era of activism of drag queens at The Stonewall Inn in New York, N.Y., to today’s visibility through Pride festivals and television shows like “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” it’s never been as open and accepted as it is today.
June is heralded as the month that the LGBT rights movement began. Out from the Greenwich Village’s Stonewall Inn, a band of courageous individuals fought back against the system to demand rights and respect from their community and neighbors.
Triad Health Project (THP), an HIV/AIDS service and support organization, is currently $21,575 short of its 2016 Dining for Friends (DFF) goal and seeks the community’s support to close the gap before the end of its fiscal year, June 30.
