We have over 23 vendors serving over 31 tastes.
We have a photobooth.
We have a DJ taking requests.
We have a beautiful venue, OZ Arts Nashville, hosting us.
We have Lyft giving 15% off rides to and from the event, and valet for those that want to drive.

What We Did
Transgender Remembrance Week ended on Wednesday with a very somber and powerful Transgender Day of Remembrance ceremony that we attended.

It is important to remember the fallen and fight for the living.
Rest in Power.

We are committed to the trans community and our members every day, not just one day or week of the year. We stand together.

We participated in the  Nashville Business Journal' ? s Expand Conversations on Tuesday. A diverse group met to discuss issues around stereotypes and what it means to be inclusive and diverse in today’s business community. ?We had several members present who brought their perspectives. It was a great way to talk about what can be uncomfortable topics. We look forward to partnering more on these in the future.
We had a fun night with our member  Nashville Soccer Club  celebrating their Expansion Draft! They also announced a partnership with another member  Fat Bottom Brewing ! As a reminder, Nashville SC is donating a portion of all season ticket proceeds to the Nashville LGBT Chamber Foundation.
Nashville Pride released the findings from the Nashville + Middle Tennessee LGBTQIA+ Community Visioning Report , culminating nearly seven months of planning, public meetings, research, data analyzation and distilling down to the recommendations that were shared by nearly 2,300 members of our LGBTQIA+ community throughout the ten-county region of Middle Tennessee.

Very excited to see this report released and ready to work on the recommendation from it. We are committed to collaboration and making the community thrive.
Thanks to  Nashville Pride  for leading this project.
