Charlotte Pride strives to create opportunities for involvement by youth and families. Our various programs and activities throughout the year reflect our commitment to youth and family inclusion, including our annual Interfaith Services, Family and Youth Zones at the annual festival and parade, and more.
Charlotte Pride strives to provide a family-friendly atmosphere and activities throughout the year, from our annual Interfaith Service and Family Zone at the festival and parade to family-friendly activities at events produced by Reel Out Charlotte, Latin Pride and other programs. In 2018, Charlotte Pride will expand its family programming in partnership with PFLAG Charlotte.
Charlotte Pride provides funding each year to present the annual Charlotte Pride Youth Dance, in collaboration with Time Out Youth Center. The event kicks off Charlotte Pride Week and provides a safe, alcohol- and drug-free social environment for youth under the age of 21. Future collaborative Youth Pride programs are being planned.
