This special, one-time award is in dedication to the actions of each layer of government for recognizing June 2018 as “LGBTQ Pride Month.” For the first time in history, the city of Raleigh, the county of Wake, and the State of North Carolina declared, in unison, that LGBTQ people exist and should always be proud of who they are. Our LGBT Center turned ten this year. Ten years of service to this city, this county, and this state.
While we are aware that not all actions taken by our government have been in our favor, we cannot deny the historic steps taken by these entities to stand strong, especially in the political climate we find ourselves in.
Representatives from each layer will be on hand to accept their award, break bread, build community, and celebrate the ten year anniversary of one of the best LGBTQ Community Centers in the country.
The LGBT Center of Raleigh is proud to recognize The State of North Carolina, Wake County, and the City of Raleigh with this special Decade of Service Award. Come help us thank our governmental leaders for their support at the LGBT Center of Raleigh Awards Gala on Friday, October 5th as a part of the Center’s Tenth Anniversary Celebration. #10Years10Reasons Tickets are available.
