The LGBT Chambers of Commerce in Austin and Nashville are teaming up to bring you “Pride in Local Music,” a showcase of LGBTQ+ artists from the two cities known for music on FRIDAY, JUNE 26, 2020, starting at 6 PM CDT and streaming online at PrideInLocalMusic.org and on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
The event will raise funds for two organizations that provide healthcare resources for working artists in the music industry – Health Alliance for Austin Musicians in Austin and Music Health Alliance in Nashville.
“Parades and festivals might have been canceled but you can’t cancel the spirit of Pride that the LGBTQ+ community shares every June. With fewer performing opportunities, we wanted to find a way to support the LGBTQ+ artists who are the cultural heartbeat of each of our cities,’ said Joe Woolley, CEO of the Nashville LGBT Chamber of Commerce.
“LGBTQ+ business leaders coming together to support the LGBTQ+ community is what our Chambers were created to do.” Added Tina Cannon, Executive Director of the Austin LGBT Chamber of Commerce, “Working together, we’re going to combine the talent of two of the greatest musical communities in the world to produce an amazing live show that directly supports LGBTQ+ artists.”
The entire event is made possible by generous support from the presenting sponsor Dell Technologies, Tito’s Vodka and Visit Austin and Visit Music City. The festival is being produced by Good Neighbor Festivals and Louie Carr from Own Path Media Group.
