O&AN to Produce the 2019 Official Nashville Pride Guide

Out & About Nashville has been awarded rights to produce the 2019 Official Nashville Pride guide, which will be on stands in early June.


This marks the second year that O&AN will produce the official guide. Last year’s guide was the largest issue O&AN had ever produced, at 72 pages. It can be viewed in PDF format here.

“Nashville Pride is proud to partner with Out and About Nashville for the annual Official Pride Guide,” said Jack Davis, whose Good Neighbor Festivals manages Nashville Pride. “Each year they provide in-depth coverage of the festival and everything happening in the Middle Tennessee area for Pride month.”

Out & About Nashville publisher Jerry Jones added, “Every year our Pride issue is distributed all month at locations throughout Middle Tennessee, including all Kroger stores in Davidson county and to our online readership, which numbers over 150,000 according to our most current independent media audit data. We've also had a strong and visible presence at the festival itself, distributing the issue at Pride. We are very excited for this opportunity to ensure that every Pride attendee has the opportunity to read the great content we produce for Pride, and to become more familiar with the gay-friendly advertisers we feature.”

Coverage for the pride guide will remain focused on Nashville Pride entertainment and events throughout the region, including Pride Night events for sports teams and spirituality nights.

“If there’s an opportunity for people to show their pride in the region, we want people to know about it,” said managing editor James Grady. “There’s just so much going on, we just hope that organizers will reach out and give us the opportunity to help spotlight all the fantastic things that are going on.”

The 2019 Pride Guide is often a one-time opportunity for businesses to show their support to the LGBT community, and to promote their diversity.

If you or your business would like to advertise in this year’s official Pride Guide, please contact our sales staff at salesnash@outvoices.us, and if your organization is hosting a Pride-themed event, be sure to let our editors know well in advance at editor@outvoices.us!

SHOREHAM, VT (September 13, 2023) — WhistlePig Whiskey, the leaders in independent craft whiskey, and Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake are waving the checkered flag on a legend-worthy release that’s taking whiskey to G-Force levels. The Limited Edition PiggyBack Legends Series: Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake Barrel is a high Rye Whiskey selected by the Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake drivers, with barrels trialed in their wind tunnel to ensure a thrilling taste in every sip.

The third iteration in WhistlePig’s Single Barrel PiggyBack Legends Series, the Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake Barrel is bottled at 96.77 proof, a nod to Valtteri Bottas’ racing number, 77, and the precision of racing. Inspired by Zhou Guanyu, the first Chinese F1 driver, this Rye Whiskey is finished with lychee and oolong tea. Herbal and floral notes of the oolong tea complement the herbaceous notes of WhistlePig’s signature PiggyBack 100% Rye, rounded out with a juicy tropical fruit finish and a touch of spice.

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
