LGBTQ – Gay Pride Calendar 2018

NOTICE:  In 2016, The Carolina Nerd created a website for a volunteer group to promote LGBTQ resources and events in the two Carolinas.  Unfortunately, the group disbanded in November of 2017.

The original volunteers have asked that their most popular page, the Calendar of LGBTQ or Gay Pride Events, be preserved and made available to the public.  In consideration of that request, the calendar is available on this page until further notice.

Updates may be sent to:
