2012 Equality Conference & Gala
Equality NC Foundation's sixth annual Equality Conference & Gala was Saturday, November 17, 2012, in Greensboro. This statewide event brought LGBT North Carolinians and allies together for a day of cutting-edge policy discussions and activist skills training, followed by an evening celebration of our collective achievements over the past year. And what a year it's been!
The daytime conference took place from the Elliott University Center on the beautiful campus of UNC-Greensboro, and the gala from the Empire Room in downtown Greensboro.

More About the Equality Conference & Gala
The Equality Conference is designed to foster activism and leadership within the LGBT rights movement in North Carolina, and we keep admission fees as low as possible to encourage maximum attendance from every part of the LGBT community. Attendees start the day with our annual State of Equality Report, attend their choice of hands-on workshops covering a variety of topics, come together for lunch, learn more about our sponsors through their exhibits, and wind up the day with our keynote speaker.
The Equality Gala is Equality NC Foundation's annual fundraiser and our opportunity to celebrate the work we do together with our supporters across the state. We also present our annual leadership award to our legislative champion of the year and we introduced our Equality Champion Awards in 2010 to recognize individual achievements in five regions across the state.
