Equality North Carolina is the oldest statewide organization in the country dedicated to securing rights and protections for the LGBTQ community. We're invested in ensuring that every North Carolinian can see themselves in this movement and helping create a safer, more equitable world for all marginalized folks. Together we can build a better North Carolina.


We envision a thriving, liberated North Carolina with a powerful LGBTQ+ community united in service of racial and social justice.


Equality North Carolina builds LGBTQ+ power through advocacy, education, and uplifting the stories of queer and trans North Carolinians in pursuit of racial and social justice.


  • We hold people at the center of all that we do: we see, hear, respect, and value each other.
  • We honor and build power on the margins until the margins are the center.
  • We know all oppression is interconnected. None of us are free until all of us are free.
  • We work strategically and sustainably: our work holds the realities of the need for both long- and short-term progress.
  • Y’all means all. We believe in the inherent dignity and worth of all, including people who are LGBTQ+, Black, Brown, Indigenous, Workers, Women, Resource Poor, Incarcerated, Immigrants, Undocumented, Rural.


  • The long-term goal of Equality NC is to enact statewide nondiscrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity & expression in housing, employment, public accommodations, credit, insurance, and education without exemptions that treat LGBTQ people differently from other protected groups. We provide training and education to individuals, institutions, businesses and the government on how to provide diverse, inclusive, and equitable environments. Additionally, we work to mobilize our communities and partners to advocate and take action against discriminatory practices. ENC achieves these goals through the core strategies of Advocacy, Training and Education, Leadership Development, and Base-building.
