WEB EXCLUSIVE Let your colors fly and experience Pride at these Raleigh and Triangle happenings.

Pride Month in Raleigh—and the surrounding Triangle area—is louder and prouder than ever! Show your #Pride by donning some rainbow attire and hitting the streets for these inclusive local happenings and deals throughout the month of June. 

Pride Rides at Rush Cycle – Morrisville

Celebrate Pride by putting the pedal to the metal at Rush Cycle in Morrisville. These addictive full-body cycle classes put your body to the test with arm moves, fast-led work, and in-and-out-of-the-saddle routines synced perfectly to your fave hits. It’s part-workout, part-dance, and full-on party.

Monthlong Pride Sale at Raleigh Tea Company

Who doesn’t love some good tea (in the form of an herbal cup of goodness or a little hot gos)? Raleigh Tea Company is helping you stock your tea collection with a sitewide sale in honor of Pride Month. Save 15% on all purchases during June by using the code “pride” at checkout. Also be sure to check out the steep shop’s featured discounted teas, Trans-Tea and LGB-Tea—the punny names are too perfect to pass up.

Pride Is a Highway! Car Parade

There’s no raining on your parade here. A plethora of local partnering organizations, nonprofits, businesses and individuals are decorating their vehicles to celebrate the driving forces behind Pride with a socially distanced outdoor car parade on June 27 at Dix Park.

Grab your friends and fam, a blanket, and a picnic, then cast your vote for your two fave cars in the parade (or register your own car if you’re feeling fancy). Winner gets the coveted Best in Tow fan-favorite award. 

Additionally, check out the events calendar on the LGBT Center of Raleigh’s website for discussion groups and other events!

Pride Ride With Raleigh Trolley

All aboard the Pride ride! The Historic Raleigh Trolley will be hosting an hourlong tour of historic locations, neighborhoods, businesses and churches important to the LGBTQ community. An event that’s fun and educational? Count us in.

Glitter Ball Drag Brunch

Enjoy all the glitz and glam of Pride at Raleigh Beer Garden. Your fave queens are back at it, and this time they’re going all out. Round up the squad and reserve a table for the hottest drag show in town, complete with complimentary mimosas, Champagne and brunch classics like the chicken and waffle sandwich. Don’t forget cash to tip the performers and bartenders!

Ruby Deluxe Community Market

Shop till you drop from a dazzling list of vendors at Ruby Deluxe on June 26. Then quench your thirst with drinks flowing throughout the event, from 1 to 4pm. The vibes are sure to be immaculate.

Pride Fest

Join Dash-N-Tell in Moore Square on June 12 to let your Pride shine during this ultimate block party. Complete with over 30 vendors, food trucks and live music, this is the perfect event for getting your rainbow on with the whole crew. A $50 wristband gets you unlimited drinks and no wait—which means more time to let your colors fly—plus do-good feels. Proceeds from sales benefit Chatham Housing Initiatives’ domestic violence nonprofit. 

Donate

Whether you’re a member of the LGBT community or an ally, tons of local organizations need your support all month (and year!) long. 

Of course, there’s the LGBT Center of Raleigh, which prides itself on programs and support for the gay, lesbian, bi and trans community in the Triangle. Additionally, check out EqualityNC, the oldest statewide organization in the country dedicated to securing rights and protections for the LGBTQ community. 
And, calling all Wolfpackers, look into supporting the GLBT Center at NC State, dedicated to engaging, developing and empowering members of the gay, lesbian, bi and trans communities, and allies!
