Up from 9,000 last year, over 15,000 people attended Memphis Pride Fest on Saturday! Downtown was overflowing with folks out celebrating equality, advocating for the LGBT community, and wearing anything rainbow-themed. Robert R Church Park was filled with vendors and food trucks–in fact more vendors participated this year than ever before. The parade began at 1 pm at the corner of Beale & Fourth and gleefully made its way down a packed Beale Street. We had two talented photographers capturing the celebration, check out our photo gallery from the event!
