Help us extend an extravagant welcome at Out!Raleigh

On May 2nd, 2015, Fayetteville Street in Downtown Raleigh transforms into the biggest Out!Raleigh festival ever! The 5th annual Out!Raleigh - "A Better Tomorrow, Today!" -will include entertainment, vendors, food trucks, and the biggest KidsZone to date.

Out! Raleigh is a fun, family-friendly event and for the fifth year in a row, the Open and Affirming Task Force (ONA) will have a booth there.  Out!Raleigh has become an integral part of Raleigh’s culture, promoting diversity awareness as well as a sense of inclusiveness for the LGBT community and its allies. Each year has been more successful than the last, and this year will be no exception. Last year, more than 25,000 people poured into City Plaza to celebrate the LGBT community, their friends and their families.

Come and join the festivities from 11:00am to 6:00pm. And make sure you stop by the ONA Task Force’s table and say hello.  If you are interested in helping us out at the festival, contact Joan McAllister.

Hope to see you at Out!Raleigh.
