6th annual Out! Raleigh festival held on Saturday

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — Blocks away from where House Bill 2 was signed, the LGBTQ community was enjoying the sixth annual Out! Raleigh festival.

Organizers expected more than 30,000 people to head to Fayetteville Street for the event.

With music, food, and vendors, people were urged to forget about HB2 and enjoy the day.

“HB2 bill really hits home. In order for them to feel loved, supported, celebrated and honored, I think this is kind of one of our milestones,” said Kelly Spaulding with the LGBT Center of Raleigh.

This festival is the main fundraiser for the LGBT Center of Raleigh.

Unlike the past, Raleigh police did not report any protests.
