Nashville Pride Equality Walk set for Saturday, June 24

Jun. 14, 2017, 5:36 PM

Show your pride, and walk with Vanderbilt University at the 2017 Nashville Pride Equality Walk on Saturday, June 24, at 10 a.m. Vanderbilt University is a proud sponsor of this year’s Nashville Pride Festival, along with Bridgestone, Nissan, Curb Records and many others.

The Equality Walk attracts more than 2,000 supporters and is a growing tradition that brings a strong cultural community together to celebrate diversity and inclusion. Both the Equality Walk and the Nashville Pride Festival are tremendous opportunities to help bring visibility to LGBT equality. Vanderbilt says #YAAASSSS to Nashville Pride!

The line for the walk begins at 9 a.m. at 2nd Avenue North and Union Street. We encourage the Vanderbilt community to wear a solid T-shirt of one of the colors from the rainbow flag: red, orange, yellow, green, blue or purple. Just look for the black and gold balloons, and walk with us behind the university banner.

Parking will be available with special event rates at the Public Square Garage, 350 Deaderick St. For more information about the festival, visit the Nashville Pride website. For questions about the walk, email Scott Glasgow.
