Charlotte Pride is the third largest pride festival in the southeast, ranking behind Atlanta and Durham's NC Pride.There are numerous LGBT-friendly bars and clubs, and the Charlotte Interfaith Equality Coalition promotes acceptance amongst religious groups for LGBT worshippers.Here's where you can meet singles in Raleigh, North Carolina.Our Wake County singles are in the 919/984 area code, and might live in these or other zip codes: 27699, 27603, 27611, 27602, 27606, 27610, 27620, or 27627 personals.These are the best towns in North Carolina where LGBT individuals and families can find a warm community: With a population of less than 90,000, Asheville is just barely over a tenth the size of Charlotte and a fifth the size of Raleigh.Starting from with those numbers, Asheville would be hard-pressed to come up with a large number of gay and lesbian residents.Pride Winston-Salem is held each fall, and it has one gay bar. The city does sport a high crime rate, similar to that of Durham, and schools are just okay, coming in at five out of 10, but that's normal for the Piedmont Triad area.With percentages of gay and lesbian households that are becoming pretty familiar by now (0.4 gay, 0.4 lesbian), Wilmington breaks no ground in terms of its gay population.
While North Carolina may not be the most gay-friendly state to call home, it does have its welcoming places.
The crime rate in Wilmington is on par with Durham and Winston-Salem, but the schools are an improvement.
By getting out of downtown and closer to the beach in areas like Silver Lake and Myrtle Grove, you can shake off some of that crime while still staying close to the city amenities.
