Through fundraising and grant making efforts, Equality Winston-Salem supports LGBTQ-affiliated organizations and initiatives. Equality Winston-Salem believes a vibrant, fully integrated LGBTQ community will catalyze the creation of a diverse, all-inclusive society.

PRIDE 2012 will occur this Saturday, from 2-10p.m. in downtown Winston-Salem. The Festival will occur on 4th Street between Spring and Spruce, and the Parade will commence at 6:00 p.m.
