CONGRATULATIONS Equality Winston-Salem, North Carolina for hosting the first pride event in over 15 years!
Winston- Salem PRIDE 2011
Saturday, October 15, 2011
11am – 5pm
Festival—4th Street between Spring and Spruce
Parade begins at 4pm
Equality Winston-Salem will host WSPride2011 on October 15, 2011. This will be the first pride event held in Winston-Salem in over 15 years. Fundraising efforts leading up to the parade include a series of four Gay Bingo events in Winston-Salem. With great support from the community, the first Gay Bingo event held in February 2011, attracted a sellout crowd of 600 and raised over $12,000 toward pride efforts. More importantly, the event drew a diverse crowd of participants and sponsors—approximately half of those in attendance were straight allies.
Amazing song and video by Ashley Jo Farmer! Check her out on facebook also!
Rally in Raleigh For Equality!
Thursday, June 2, 12:00 – 2:00 PM
16 W. Jones Street Raleigh, NC
North Carolina based groups Sexuality and Gender Alliance (SAGA) and GetEQUAL NC unite with other groups and individuals to fight North Carolina SB106 and North Carolina HB777 (the North Carolina anti-gay super-DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) on June 2, 2011. We will gather at the State Government Halifax Mall adjacent to the N.C. Legislative Building at 16 W. Jones Street in downtown Raleigh at Noon.
Unite to fight SB106 and HB777 (the North Carolina anti-gay super-DOMA)! The proposed legislation would not only put an anti-gay marriage amendment on the 2012 ballot, it would also prevent private businesses and municipalities in NC from offering domestic partnership insurance benefits and make null and void Domestic Partnership Registries in the three cities in NC that offer them (Chapel Hill, Asheville and Carrboro); basically, it would end all relationship recognition outside of heterosexual marriage.
