Update 09/22: Due to heavy rain in the forecast for Saturday, Durham Tech organizers have decided not to participate in this year's Durham Pride Parade.
March with Durham Tech in Durham's Pride Parade. The event takes place on Duke's East Campus but Durham Tech participants will meet up at 10 a.m. in Whole Foods parking lot. The parade begins at 10:30 a.m.
This year’s theme for Pride is “Give them their flowers" to offer honor and gratitude for the courage and leadership of our trans communities, particularly our Black and brown trans women and non-binary folks. Pride events will provide opportunities to center and celebrate members of the LGBTQ+ community who boldly certify our public standards for human dignity, all while facing physical violence, hateful legislation, and other harmful experiences. We intend to commemorate our ancestors who sowed past seeds that still bear fruit today and to pay tribute to the people who help us be our best selves now, embodying our highest values and greatest visions for a more whole, safe, and liberated Durham, North Carolina.
