Blue Ridge Pride

WHAT THEY DO: Blue Ridge Pride advocates, celebrates, educates and serves our growing WNC LGBTQ+ population. Our vision is an inclusive community, where people are embraced for who they are and feel welcomed to engage and contribute. WNC is home to an estimated 35,000 people who identify as LGBTQ. We collaborate with WNC’s community service organizations and companies that welcome and serve our community, where family values run deep.

Blue Ridge Pride has been a pillar of LGBTQIA community for many years in Western North Carolina. Whether it be the many community-building events that they offer, the many community-based programs or the virtual community center, they have devoted time and love into making WNC a more inclusive, equitable and engaged community.
