The annual Cooper-Young Festival is set for Saturday, September 14th, and as usual, there will be plenty of opportunities to learn more about local LGBT advocacy and pride groups.
As always, the Memphis Gay & Lesbian Community Center will be educating the public about their programs, which range from placing homeless LGBT teens into supportive homes and food pantry services to support groups and social potlucks. The MGLCC booth will be set up near the community center at 892 S. Cooper.
The Tennessee Equality Project will be registering voters and raising awareness about statewide LGBT legislation and equality efforts at their booth. They will be set up near Java Cabana on the north side of Young.
Mid-South Pride will be promoting the 10th annual pride parade and celebration, which is set for October 12th on Beale Street downtown. They'll also be signing up volunteers for the event and promoting other fund-raising events between now and pride weekend.
There will be a Mid-South Pride after-party at Club Spectrum beginning at 10 p.m.
