Nashville Gay Parent Members Making History

nashville-gay-parents-wkrn-newsNashville Gay Parents members Stephanie Shelton and Lisa Cross were part of Tennessee Equality Project’s marriage equality initiative throughout Tennessee on Wednesday, August 7, 2013.  The couple were rejected a marriage license in Lebanon, TN (Wilson County) as a first step needed for attorneys to begin the case for marriage equality in Tennessee since the Supreme Court decision overturning the Defense of Marriage Act.

The couple appeared on several local news outlets for their first steps toward equality.  See the WKRN story here.

2013 Nashville Pride

Last year, we hosted our inaugural booth which was met with amazing success.  We had more than 20 families join our group from their contact at the event.

This year we purchased a booth again and need you to (1) volunteer to represent us during a shift and (2) drop by and say hello.

When you arrive, find the guide and look for “Nashville Gay Parents.”  Remember, there is a fee to enter the festival.
