As Charlotte’s 2017 Pride Parade draws to a close, the city is gearing up for another celebration of diversity, inclusion and equality.
In honor of International Women’s Day on May 8, the City of Charlotte is planning to host a series of events designed to make the event more inclusive, diverse and welcoming to all.
In a statement, Mayor Jennifer Roberts announced the following changes to the Parade:There will be no floats, floats alone, or any specific theme.
The parade will feature a diverse array of floats, a diverse mix of floats from the various floats of the parade, and a diverse group of floats that reflect the diverse community in the city.
The float design will include a diverse blend of floats including floats from groups from the LGBTQ community and other groups.
A number of floats will be designated to include specific people of color, individuals with disabilities, individuals of low socioeconomic status, and individuals with sexual orientation and gender identity.
All floats will feature people of different ages, ethnicities, genders, and ages with diverse backgrounds and experiences.
The City will host an interactive art space for the celebration.
The art space will be accessible to everyone in the parade.
In addition to the parade theme, the events and programs will also include a “People of Color Week” to highlight the importance of the diversity of the LGBTQ population in the community.
In addition, the “LGBTQ & Queer Community” and “Diversity in Entertainment” events will also take place on the day.
The parade will be held on May 6, 2018 at 5 p.m. in Charlotte.
The following day, the parade will begin with floats from around the world and will culminate in a grand finale parade at the Capital Regional Park.
