Be social and get Out! in the Carolinas

Wow! Over 70 Carolina-based social events in August…and counting.

Our Facebook event calendar for August 2017 includes pride-related programs, sports events, youth meetings, fundraisers, arts and music performances.

When we created the State & Regional event calendar, the vast number of annual Pride Festivals and major events held in the Carolinas surprised even us.

However, the big surprise arrived a few months later with the addition of the Facebook Event calendar.

We have found and shared dozens of LGBTQ social events in North and South Carolina.  Even more were shared with us by you, via email and Facebook.

Facebook Social Event Promotions are Free

Facebook event pages are an excellent, free tool for promoting a variety of programs.  We encourage LGBTQ organizations to use them regularly.  The more you create, the better we and your supporters can share them.  Be sure to create a fully descriptive title to identify the event, its purpose, and/or sponsor.


Thank you for your support thus far.  Your efforts, in concert with our volunteer staff, are helping spread the word.

We look forward to promoting your LGBTQ social events.

Get Out! Be Social…
