2014 Pride Parade

The N.C. Pride Parade and Festival includes an outdoor film screening, 5K run/walk, guest speakers and more.

When N.C. Pride held its first parade in Durham in 2001, there was only one float on the route. The four-door Plymouth decorated like a wedding cake belonged to the organizer’s mother.

That same organizer, John Short, says the N.C. Pride Parade has evolved into a 2.5-mile route, 13 commercial floats, 60 vehicles and 110 marching groups this year, to include many from Duke University.

“When I see the young kids, the college students participating, when I was their age, I would never have been able to do this,” said Short, the volunteer executive director of N.C. Pride who is retired. “I would never have been able to be out, and think it’s just a wonderful thing for them to express themselves and be comfortable.”
