The Faith Community Rally Against Homophobia and Transphobia is being held Friday, June 24. This rally is one of many others across North Carolina in attempt to gain support for LGBT supporters. The march is fighting back against the anti-LGBT amendment that NC state legislature is currently deliberating.

Around the Charlotte Convention Center at 4:30 p.m., supporters will march along the sidewalks where the Unitarian Universalist Association is holding its annual meeting,

Local, national and international clergies will be speaking in Marshall Park after the march. Speakers will share their opinion against the legislation that will discriminate against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

Sponsors for the rally include Time Out Youth, the Unitarian Universalist Association's "Standing on the Side of Love" campaign, Human Rights Campaign, and Equality North Carolina.

The march and rally will be from 4:40 to 6:30 p.m. To give your support visit www.equalitync.org/faith.
