The work encourages everyone to join in the renewed spirit of resistance for the future—not just for LGBTQ+ individuals, but for all victims of bullying, hate, intolerance and violence.

A portion of the proceeds from Quiet No More will go to support the LGBT Center of Raleigh and the LGBTQ Center of Durham.
