Pride Month in Memphis

Comedy queen Quinta Brunson once said…


National Pride Month is not only a time to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community, a vibrant, steadfast group of humans who deserve to be unapologetically themselves—but it also presents many opportunities for folks to find solace amongst their peers, or to seek greater understanding on how to be a better ally throughout the year. 

Whether it’s a party, or a chance to empower others, this June is jam packed with all kinds of good times for the girls, gays and theys!

See what's poppin for pride month in memphis:

You’re invited to experience the single largest gathering for LGBTQ+ and allies in the Mid-South! From their Drag and Drive outdoor movie event to the annual Big Gay Dance Party, parade, and more, Mid-South Pride really knows how to bring a community of queers together!

Feelin sexy, grown, and gay? Bring that good energy to Hot Memphis Pride Weekend! Between the Block Twerk Festival, the Pride Pool Party, live performances, a Skate-Off, and programming for those 25 and up, you’ll be feelin’ mighty fine during these festivities!

P.S. there’s even a little something planned for those 18 and up!

The Stonewall Riots were a pivotal point in LGBTQ+ history and it’s time we all take a trip down memory lane to remember how the celebrations of Love and Liberty began.

Created by the Newseum in Washington D.C, this traveling exhibit—on display at the Museum of Science and History—details how the modern day Gay Rights Movement was ignited in the late 60s, and how it’s continued today. 

An unapologetically queer dance party? We love to see it! Make your way to the Pumping Station where Sauna Memphis is making its summer comeback for. DJ Marceaux Marceaux and DJ Nathan Ashby will be spinning from 10 til, and you get to experience to vibes for free.99!
