In 2014, just before same-sex couples could marry in Charlotte for the first time, Charlotte Pride drew an estimated 80,000 people. Tryon Street transforms during this event. Elected officials lead the way. Local vendors line the parade route selling food and drinks. And a parade that celebrates differences is becoming a familiar part of life in center city.
