If you didn’t get the memo, or maybe just didn’t head uptown this weekend, you missed out on an amazing LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer) Pride Festival and parade.
All things rainbow, skin and a little S&M, Pride happens twice a year in Charlotte — Black Gay Pride in July and then Pride in August — don’t ask that’s just how it is. It often looks like a unicorn threw up, and I love it! Resting bitch face is few and far between as thousands fill the streets of the Queen City (yasss, queen).
Inclusivity and the celebration of all is always the focus of Pride, in Charlotte and it’s safe to say at any festival you’ll go to. What I love most is that anything goes! Glitter, cheetah print and leather, you name it, it’s like the Spice Girls have officially reunited for a tour.
This year, of course, was extra special with #lovewinning as the legalization of gay marriage nationwide occurred back on June 27. As a result, I was especially excited to join in on the festivities this year.
I have been to many festivals, so I decided to enjoy the lake life on Saturday while anticipating returning to one of my favorite clubs, The Scorpio.
