HRC Prom

Historically, many LGBTQ individuals were not given the opportunity to be themselves during their high school years and attend prom with the person of their desire. HRC Triangle seeks to change that by creating a safe space for individuals to re-live their high school years and, importantly, to have fun. The event will be held at Rigsbee Hall, 208 Rigsbee Avenue, Durham, NC, from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m. on Friday, September 28, 2018.   Along with a night of fun supporting the Human Rights Campaign, your ticket purchase includes light hors d’oeuvres and one drink ticket.

pop up! pix: selections from Mattress Catalog

Please enjoy a short show of pictures from Justin Branch’s debut art portfolio Mattress Catalog.


Born and bred ;) in rural southeast NC, Justin (b. 1988) draws inspiration from his damned self. Mattress Catalog explores the human phallus (ok ok, it's d*ck pics) and our visual relationship to genitalia. Why does it matter what it looks like, and how does the look affect our experiences with stimulation, penetration, memory, lust and longing, consent, security and love?


The work will hang upstairs at 305 East Chapel Hill Street for the duration of Pride.
