Over 150K people came to Charlotte, N.C., last weekend to celebrate. Read more below.
Pride, or Pride-like festivities, have been held in Charlotte since the 1970s. Last year, Charlotte Pride attracted 150,000 visitors over the course of its August 26-27 event. The parade grew to an historic record, surpassing other local parades as the largest parade in Charlotte. Other accomplishments in 2017 included a successful film festival, at which community members voted for a new rebranding; the new name, Reel Out Charlotte, debuted this year at the 10th annual LGBTQ film festival in the Queen City.
