It’s Sunday evening and the traffic is building up in and around Uptown Charlotte. Visited the offices of The PPL this morning, where some of our staff will be working during the convention. It’s also where National Stonewall Democrats will hold a special convention watch party, reception and late-night dance party on Tuesday.

Tonight, though, is the Unity Through Community event, the official LGBT welcome party of the convention. Our staff will be there, so watch for updates here and on Twitter @qnotescarolinas.

Bonus: A photo of Carolina beach music group, Chairmen of the Board, at last night’s Charlotte in 2012 Host Committee DNC media welcome event.
