"It really shows how welcoming Greensboro is," said Paul Marshall, chair of the festival. "This is such a safe place for anybody to come and have a good time and can be themselves."

"While we've come a long way, we've got a long way to go," Marshall said. "It's events like this that'll let people know what the LGBT community's all about."
