NC Pride @ Night

Our mission: To provide awareness, education and financial support resources to LGBTQ communities at large.

31 years ago Raleigh’s first Gay Pride celebration was held on Saturday, June 25, 1988. Participants, numbering over 2,000, gathered at the NC State’s Memorial Bell Tower on Hillsborough St. and marched to Capitol Square.

On Sept. 28, 2019, join us as we honor the past and celebrate the future as we echo their voices on Harrington St.

Each year NC Pride at Night awards proceeds from the festival, raised from sponsors, donors, vendors and merchandise sales, to a named beneficiary. Organizations that apply for consideration will be voted on by our Board of Directors.

Apply to be considered for NC Pride at Night’s beneficiary. Awardee will be named by July 19, 2019.
