The City of Jackson is listed as an official sponsor of Jackson Pride’s weekend LGBT pride celebration, which features an all-ages drag show.
“Jackson Pride is an annual event celebrating the LGBTQIA community and its allies. Hosted every fall right here in Jackson, TN, it celebrates inclusivity in a fun, family-friendly environment,” says the city’s official website.
After a similar show embroiled Chattanooga Pride in controversy, Jackson Pride is set to host an all ages drag show as part of its annual pride week celebration.
“This event aims to bring the LGBTQIA+ population together, including communities within this community. Funds raised at the Jackson Pride Event will allow us to continue to expand and grow our mission of supporting diversity through awareness,” said Darren Lykes, a Jackson Pride Board Member. “We are thankful to all of the sponsors and volunteers who, without their support, we would not be able to make the event possible.”
