Equality NC is the largest statewide lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights advocacy organization in North Carolina. In the past decade, Equality NC has strategically moved North Carolina from a state with extremely limited legal protections for LGBT individuals to a state with some of the most comprehensive protections in the south.

Equality North Carolina has passed monumental pieces of legislation and continues to advance equality through legislative advocacy, public education and community empowerment.
