Affirming the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, transgender, two-spirited people, and their supporters in the Catawba Valley region of North Carolina

Dear Catawba Valley Community,

With COVID-19 continuing to worsen and the prospect of stay-at-home orders returning in the coming weeks, Catawba Valley Pride has made the difficult decision to go ahead and cancel our September event this year.

The health and safety of everyone remain our top priority and we believe a live event during this difficult time would be irresponsible. Our team is discussing alternative options, including possible online events so that everyone can still show their pride but do so safely. We are open to suggestions if you have any. We thank you for your understanding.

Happy Pride Month!

Catawba Valley Pride President

After much consideration and due to growing concerns regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), we've decided to cancel the 3rd annual Catawba Valley Transgender Pride event. We may reschedule it for a later date in 2020, so stay tuned!

Join Catawba Valley Pride for our annual fundraiser on February 14th in the Upper Level of Bottega on Union Square, 5-7 pm!
Address: 256 Union Square NW, Hickory, NC 28601
NOTE LOCATION CHANGE! The event will be at Bottega, not Trade Alley Art.

The Catawba Valley Pride LGBT* Welcoming Spaces campaign is in response to tragic deaths of two transgender teens in the Charlotte area, and efforts to pass laws enabling discrimination against LGBT* customers. Catawba Valley Pride seeks to create a more supportive environment in the Catawba Valley by asking LGBT* affirming businesses and organizations to display the message “We Welcome Everyone” in their storefront window.
