Out!Raleigh Pride has a festive family-friendly vibe.  You’ll see grandparents joyfully escorting their out-and-proud grandchildren, couples courting, parents with strollers and dogs, and friends laughing together.  Fayetteville Street is lined with vendors (everything from insurance companies to sellers of rainbow tutus to churches). There are food trucks, and live music pulses over the crowd.  Yes, a very few people come to “preach” on the corners, but that’s why we’re there… to be Christ’s love with a warm smile celebrating that God created us in so many wonderful ways of living and loving.  It’s lively, colorful, fun and may become one of your favorite days of the year.

Thank you to all who signed up to assist.  We have all the volunteers we need.
