Webb says it’s been a tough few months for North Carolina’s gay and lesbian community. North Carolina voters in May approved a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. As the Democratic National Convention draws near, the community plans to be more visible. They will hold a two-day gay pride celebration the weekend before the convention. (AP Photo/Bob Leverone)
