Message From Knox Pride's President, Jennifer Green

Welcome fellow LGBTQ+ and Ally individuals in East TN to Knox Pride's Blog! Our blog will refocus on the inner workings of Knox Pride, our events, individuals in the local community and stories in our community.  

For those of you who do not know, Knox Pride, also known as ETEC or East Tennessee Equality Council, is a 501(c)(3) ran by volunteers from the Greater Knoxville area. We host monthly Board Meetings that are open to the public and would love for you to attend, share feedback and get more involved in shaping Knox Pride's future. Our Board and respective Event Chairs, work closely with local businesses and the City of Knoxville to support our annual Pridefest event.  

As Knox Pride's recently elected President, I look forward to the growth of not just Pridefest, but of Knox Pride as a whole. Through new fundraisers and Adventures with Knox Pride, we have many events to peak your interest. In expanding our offerings to include Adventures with Knox Pride, we look to host events that are family friendly and outside of the bar atmosphere as requested by the community.  

I welcome you to attend a meeting, send us an email or message us on Facebook and provide your feedback. We look forward to hearing from you East TN!

Thank you,
Jennifer Green
