May is National Photograph Month

One request that we received via email was for ideas of different and out of the box activities that a social group could participate in each month. The staff put our heads together and have found a list of “theme days” that could put your creative minds to work. Apparently just about every single day of the year in a national “something” day, so we’ve decided to share them with you. Every month also carries an overall theme nationally, so we are adapting this into some of our blogs in 2016.

May Theme: National Photograph Month

Visit Gay Charlotte continues to grow and stretch as all eyes are on us (Charlotte) nationally with the intensity of debates with HB2. Our staff has grown, as we work to keep up with the growing requests in our inbox. Charlotteans and visitors to our beautiful city want something fun, informative and “different”… and we are here to deliver.

We couldn’t think of a better time to introduce and recognize our team than now – National Photo Month! Each day from May 14th through the end of the month, we will introduce one member of our team via social media and update their information on our contact page. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us better!
