North Carolina Pride

The Pride Committee of North Carolina’s mission statement reflects the fact that despite many social, political and economic gains that have been made by individuals and institutions in various LGBT communities throughout North Carolina, much work still needs to be done. At the same time, however, we understand the need to celebrate our victories and accomplishments.

Our mission is:

  • to promote unity and visibility among lesbians, gay men, bisexual and transgendered people
  • to promote a positive image through programs and public activities that foster an awareness of our past struggles
  • to be recognized as an important and talented sector of our diverse state.
  • to support and encourage HIV/AIDS education, breast cancer awareness and basic health education
