Southern Pride is our monthly column exploring and celebrating LGBTQ culture in Southern cities. This month we're heading to the Tar Heel State to check out the scene in Greensboro.
Since the A&T Four Sit-Ins in 1960, which famously launched a series of protests that led to the desegregation of dining facilities across the South spurring on the Civil Rights Movement, Greensboro has been known for its dedication to inclusion. Today, almost 60 years later, a robust LGBTQ community proudly calls this diverse city home, claiming Greensboro as the perfect place for queer folks to settle, raise a family and start their own businesses.
If you have been looking to move south and value diversity, access to LGBT-friendly higher education options and plenty of opportunity for entrepreneurs, then you should take a closer look at what Greensboro, NC has to offer.
