SFQP is a community organized and funded event. All SFQP events have a suggested $7 to $20 sliding scale door cover, however, no one will be turned away due to lack of funds. All funds raised help keep SFQP going, pay artists and performers, and pay the venues that host our events.
**Southern Fried Queer Pride (SFQP), a queer and trans, arts and advocacy collective led by QTBIPoC creating Southern queer culture, is dedicated towards creating spaces that are open and responsive to the needs of the communities we serve. We always intend to uplift and include the most marginalized voices. SFQP wants to maintain accountability for our actions and practices. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have comments, questions, and/or concerns.**

Southern Fried Queer Pride Durham is sponsored by the following organizations and businesses:
Southern Vision Alliance
The Southern Vision Alliance (SVA) is a grassroots intermediary organized for the charitable and educational purposes of providing infrastructure, capacity-building, and assistance to youth-centered organizations and programs. SVA supports leadership development and base-building work for social, racial, and environmental justice, along with gender equity, LGBTQ rights, and education justice in the US South.
Equality NC, the oldest statewide LGBTQ organization in the country, is dedicated to securing equal rights and justice for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) North Carolinians. We tirelessly lobby the North Carolina General Assembly, executive branch, and local governments, broadcast LGBTQ news, stories and content, and mobilize our communities on issues that matter most to you, including marriage equality, parental rights, inclusive anti-bullying policies, employment discrimination, hate violence, privacy rights, sexuality education, adoption, domestic partnerships, and HIV/AIDS.
We are a space to share, make, and collaborate on good work. Our downtown Durham home is a laboratory for ideas, stocked with resources and support for makers of all kind.
