10th Year Brings New Focus on PRIDE in the Triangle
Raleigh, NC: The LGBT Center of Raleigh today announced the new date and updated logo for their Pride street festival. The event will be held on May 30, 2020 and the new logo celebrates the partnership with Raleigh PRIDE. This milestone is a major move forward for the LGBT Center of Raleigh as the Center continues to broaden its partnerships across the Triangle community. In addition, the LGBT Center of Raleigh has also released a new sponsorship, and advertising package along with updates to the Out!Raleigh Pride website. This inclusive and action-packed event is family friendly with activities for all ages. Out! Raleigh Pride is an important way to raise the necessary funds to support the LGBT Center of Raleigh and all of its 20+ amazing community programs. Last year, more than 66,000 people poured into Raleigh’s Fayetteville Street to celebrate the LGBT community, our friends, and families.
“You know this as the OUT! Raleigh festival historically. Since 2010 the festival has had a few name changes - but the addition of PRIDE represents embracing queer culture and queer identities! Our 10th anniversary is the start of something new combined with the festival you already know and love!” says Lindsey Lughes, Executive Director at LGBT Center of Raleigh.
“We have been working together since 2019 to raise funds and spread inclusivity throughout the city via events that contribute to the texture of our LGBTQ+ community and have decided to make our shared vision for Raleigh official by co-hosting OUT! Raleigh Pride.” Josh Lamm, Co-founder, Raleigh Pride.
