On Tuesday, March 2nd, gay rights advocates will gather in Nashville to push for pro-LGBT legislation on the Tennessee Equality Project's (TEP) Advancing Equality Day.
Specifically, advocates will be lobbying against a proposed bill that would prevent unmarried couples from adopting. They'll also be working to expand hate crimes protections.
LGBT folks with an interest in running for office should attend the "Candidates and Campaigns 101" informational session hosted by the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund on Monday, March 1st at OutCentral Cultural Center (1907 Church St. in Nashville). An Advancing Equality Day opening reception is planned for Tribe (1517 Church St.) on Monday as well.
TEP has secured group rates of $89 per room at the Doubletree Hotel (315 Fourth Ave. North in Nashville), but reservations must be made prior to Saturday, Feb. 20th.
