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.

I don’t know what it is with men’s jeans that make it so difficult to find the right pair. It takes time to go through all these denim brands and try styles like straight-legged, boot-cut, and then the disco favorite, flared jeans. Thanks to popular metal bands back in the day, acid-washed and stone-washed jeans were a thing–pair those with a biker jacket and some big hair, and you were set.

I think we’ve all been there back in the day when we smoked our first joint, and then some, (sorry mom)–hacking, coughing, and choking on the herbaceous weed. Nowadays, there are several products on the market that produces the same effects but without a sore throat like the popular cannabis edibles.

As an LGBTQ+ patient, you should be able to expect the same high-quality care provided to all patients. Unfortunately, this doesn’t necessarily always prove to be the case. There remains a notoriously significant disparity in healthcare outcomes for LGBTQ+ patients, often related to issues with discrimination among providers.

Even when you find a good physician, this doesn’t mean that everyone interacting with your healthcare information will be as respectful or responsible. It is, therefore, important to be vigilant about how your data is handled. You have a right to privacy just as you have an expectation of fair treatment.
