Carrboro Pride 2019 Documentary

During June 2019, the Town of Carrboro celebrated the 50th anniversary of Stonewall in several ways, including a Pride parade, a poetry night, a LatinX celebration and a panel discussion of current LGBTQ+ issues. The Town closed out the festivities with a dance party on the Town Commons.

Mayor Lydia Lavelle has proclaimed June 2020 LGBTQ+ Month in Carrboro. She acknowledges that Pride 2020 hasn't been the same as previous in-person celebrations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Still, she expects this film will bring Pride to our community and people everywhere.

The film offers a brief view into how a small southern town can create safe spaces and understands the importance of being seen and heard, while also calling into action the work that still needs to be done.
