Join Monarch at the Charlotte Pride Parade, August 21

This August, Monarch will return as a participant in Charlotte’s Pride Festival and Parade activities, but for the first time, we will join other non-profit organizations, businesses, civic clubs and churches as a participant in the Pride Parade at 1 p.m., Sunday, August 21.

Participation in the Charlotte Pride Parade highlights Monarch’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion as we join others committed to LGBTQ+ advocacy efforts and promotes our services and employment recruitment efforts to the large, diverse audience lining the streets during the event.

Join us! Participation in this event is open to Monarch employees, friends, family members and people we support. Participants should plan to arrive by 12 p.m. and plan to be in Uptown Charlotte for several hours. The parade route is nine city blocks, or about one mile, and there will be a drop-off location for anyone requiring special accommodations. Participants will receive a Monarch “We Care” T-shirt! Additional details will be provided as the event nears.

If you would like to participate or have questions, please email Public Relations Manager Brian Gott at
