Charlotte Pride Festival, the Queen City’s annual lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender celebration, will be held Uptown Aug. 24-25.

Highlights this year include the Bank of America Charlotte Pride Parade featuring over 70 floats and vehicles including appearances by Charlotte Mayor Patsy Kinsey and City Council members LaWana Mayfield and Billy Maddalon. Wesley Mancini and Bishop Tonyia M. Rawls are grand marshals.

This marks the first time in nearly 20 years that a Pride parade has marched in Charlotte.

Charlotte Pride Festival will be held on South Tryon Street between Third and Stonewall Streets from 12-10 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday from 12-6 p.m.

Grammy-award winning singer Mya is performing on the Wells Fargo stage and with Judith Hill of “The Voice” and New Orleans “Bounce” artist Big Freedia. Other performing artists include national drag artists Alyssa Edwards, Detox Icunt and CoCo Montrese, contestants from the hit show “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”

Comments

The University area is slowly turning into the ghetto. The area has more drug dealers living there every year. Blame the city of Charlotte and the Mecklenburg Police Department who get their kickbacks of money from the drug dealers living in the area. The police chief lives in Fountaingrove take your anger out on him about falling home prices and drug dealers living next to you. Your Shea homes and your John Wieland Homes will be worth nothing. I hope they don't push out to Skybrook and Davidson.
