NC Pride 2011 Photo Blog

The annual North Carolina Pride Parade happened today as it has now for many, many years.  In addition to the celebration of the diverse community that Pride always represents, there was also a special urgency created by the recent passage of a bill to put the marriage discrimination amendment on the ballot this coming May.  This was a moment to both enjoy how far we've come, and organize for the challenges ahead.  It was great to see Orange County and UNC so well represented at Pride.

You want to join in the fun but couldn't find the time to create an entry for the parade? 

We have a variety of magical giant puppets that need your help to bring to life! Just fill out a Registration form  today and come early to join in the parade!

But what do we need most?
your family and friends ... to come out and enjoy a day of magic on the streets of Hillsborough. Come and enjoy the spectacle! Then follow the parade up Churton Street to the finale' at the Historic Burwell School lawn.
