“These students, like all college students, are open to attend any student event,” the school said. “Forsyth Tech is committed to being a place of promise for our students. In order to fulfill that promise, we have clearly spelled out our mission, vision and equity statements.”
Promotional materials for the 2023 Pride Festival, which was held at a restaurant on campus, advertised four drag queens, a “drag performance” and “free food, drinks, music & activities.”
At least one Christian church, Parkway United Church of Christ, attended the event, according to photos posted by organizer Forsyth Tech PRIDE Club on Facebook.
A program of the Forsyth County Health Department, Prevent Ongoing Spread of STIs Everywhere (POSSE), set up a free HIV and STI testing station at the event and repeatedly promoted it on its Facebook page.
