You are invited to join us for Pride Life Expo, the Triangle’s first LGBTQ+ Expo for the entire community. It’s going to be a lot of fun and certainly a great way to connect with others from the community.

The Pride Life Expo is a unique opportunity to interact with over 170 organizations. They want you to know that they value their relationship with you and all members of the LGBTQ+ community. Some of them are LGBT owned or operated; all others identify as community friendly. Every one of our exhibitors and sponsors is looking forward to meeting you to show what they can offer. All exhibitors will be vetted for appropriateness to join our event.

The Expo will reach out to all ages, from pre-teens to retirees, with a primary goal of education. You will learn about for-profit and non-profit entities that you may not have known existed, especially if you are interested in finding those organizations that will treat you with respect and dignity. And if you are 50 years of age or better you will find exhibitors that very much want to meet you by looking for their specially marked designations.

We in the community frequently ask each other “do you have a LGBT+ friendly doctor/ financial planner/ electrician/ fill in the blank?” We want to learn about, and support businesses and organizations that value us as consumers. Through this Expo you will be able to connect with them on your own terms.

Among our many exhibitors you will find services such as financial advisors, real estate agencies, legal consultants, health care providers, retirement communities, and so much more. If you have a need, it will likely be answered here at the Pride Life Expo.

You are also welcomed to attend free educational and consumer-savvy breakout sessions throughout the day. Over the next months we will be adding to the roster of presenters and will announce the lineup as the date for ticket sales approaches.
