6/22: Nashville Pride Festival

In case you haven’t been on the internet or haven’t noticed that everything around you is rainbow-y, June is Pride Month. And as usual, Nashville is celebrating the occasion the right way: there’s going to be a festival on June 22 and 23 at Public Square Park (in front of City Hall, where Live on The Green is) featuring vendors, food, drinks, and headlining sets from Neon Trees and TLC. And as usual, it’s all free. Get all the info here.

But before you go, we’d like to throw out a gentle reminder. This year marks 50 years since the Stonewall Riots in New York. So, by all means, enjoy yourself this weekend, but also maybe take a second to think about what the brave folks at Stonewall who sacrificed to pave the way for Pride. If you want to learn more—or if you have no idea what we’re talking about—check this article out. Peace, Love, and Pride, babies.
