Nashville has been deemed one of the brightest, most budding arts scenes of the south, and that community-driven approach trickles into their queer population as well. Gay bars are just a percent of queer things to do in Nashville, and this city is an incredible place to celebrate Pride for its finger-on-the-pulse of food and music. Dig in! We’ve curated this list of queer to-dos in the neighborhood so you can experience the best of your Pride season.
