Inquiring Minds Want To Know About Your Pride

Summer is in full swing and it's time for some pride, Nashville Pride that is.

The LGBT festival is celebrating 21 years of pride in a big way. It is scheduled to take place on Saturday at Riverfront Park in Nashville, Tenn. from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Entertainment will include musical artists such as Lady Bunny, Atomic Blonde and headliner Deborah Cox.

Even though the festival doesn't begin until Saturday, events have been occurring all week. On June 17, Daisy Rae Welch hosted Family Feud night at Tribe in Nashville. Outloud also screened the documentary "Before Stonewall."

On Thursday, author Lamar Ariel met with fans at Outloud to promote his new book "Ready To Male."

Friday, June 19 Play hosted a Riveter Rock Women' s Music Festival. As a pre-pride concert, Play welcomed Laura Hildebrandt to the stage at 11 p.m.

Pride events will continue through June 26 when comedian Lisa Lampanelli is scheduled to perform at Ryman Auditorium at 8 p.m. Tickets are still available and can be bought in advance or at the door.

All events are open to everyone, depending on age for certain venues.
