GREENSBORO, N.C. — The U.S. Department of Agriculture, the National Center for Lesbian Rights, the True Colors Fund and the LGBTW Law Center at North Carolina A&T State University on June 6 will host the first in a series of summits designed to highlight the needs of LGBT people who live in rural areas.

A press release describes the gathering that will take place on the campus of North Carolina A&T State University as “a day-long discussion on the needs of the LGBT community in rural America and the policy changes under the Obama administration that have helped to address some of the vulnerabilities of rural LGBT people and families.” The summit is the first in a series of events scheduled to take place as part of the Rural Pride campaign the groups launched last month.

The next summit is scheduled to take place in Lost Valley, W.Va., on July 11.
