Out & About Nashville to publish the Official Nashville Pride Guide

Nashville Pride will reach a huge milestone in 2018, as the festival hits the 30-year mark. This year also marks a significant shift in the relationship between Pride and Out & About Nashville, as this year’s June issue will double as the official 2018 Pride Guide.

“Nashville Pride is proud to partner with Out and About Nashville for the annual Official Pride Guide,” said Pride president Ryan Ellis. “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 and Rutherford counties and to our online readership, which numbers over 127,000 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!”

How will this affect the content of this year’s Pride issue?

“Our coverage 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 print 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!”

When you come out to Nashville Pride 2018 on June 23-24, 2018, be sure to find your copy of Out & About Nashville, and drop by our booth to say hello!  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 at editor@outvoices.us.

Velvet Ibiza

Every year, Ibiza is home to Europe’s very epic queer woman’s party, Velvet Ibiza, which is celebrating its 7th anniversary and promises to be next level. Velvet Ibiza is an all-inclusive 5-day and 5-night party and includes transportation from the airport, a bungalow, 3 meals, and activities and parties day and night, and drinks until around 10:30 pm.

This year, international crowds of LGBTQ+ women will be attending Velvet Ibiza on May 2 - 7 to celebrate life, belonging, and freedom. Event organizers have rented an entire resort in order to build a community vibe and allow queer women to connect so there’s no reason to go anywhere unless of course, you want to go shopping, head to the beach, or explore the island.

Financial Planning for the LGBTQ+ community

The new year has arrived. For many people, that means making resolutions and thinking of ways they can do better in the coming year and beyond. Money management and financial planning are often very popular resolutions and goals, but most financial advice tends to be aimed at heterosexual couples who want to grow their family and raise children.

But, what if your life goals are different? What if you don’t receive the same protection under the current laws as hetero couples?
What if you don’t want to have kids?
