What’s NWA Equality?
NWA Equality serves our local community by providing education, advocacy, resources and services to our lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer brothers/sisters/friends/loves. Every summer, this kick ass org puts on the largest NWA LGBTQ pride celebration: Northwest Arkansas Pride.
A Word from Mad Girl Ashley Molesso
“I chose to support NWA Equality for my birthday because I want to help raise awareness in Arkansas for the LGBT community. I grew up in Arkansas and at the time there weren’t a lot of gay people around, or at least they weren’t out yet, and also the area is generally Bible-belty and Republican [so typically non inclusive/accepting/approving of LGBTQ – cheers to the inclusive Christian and Republican brothers and sisters] that it’s not something that many people were talking about.
I think it’s important and great that there is a place locally that serves to provide education and awareness, and acts as a safe haven for LGBT people who need a community, want to be more informed, or need services.
ALSO, in May, we are going to be releasing some LGBT art prints and cards of which a portion of the proceeds will go towards LGBT organizations.”
