Generations of Pride: What Does Pride Mean, Then and Now?

June 1, 2013


Josh Robbins

Josh Robbins; Nashville, Tenn.

Gosh! I guess I was a latecomer to the Pride party, as I have only been going to a Pride festival in Nashville for the past four years -- I'm 30.

In Music City, our Pride festival is downtown (yes, next to the Honky-Tonk bars and all). This year, the event really will mean more to me because of the strides we as a niche demographic have made this year to become more equal. And I believe that is not only worth fighting toward, but it's worth celebrating. Yes, maybe I was late to the Pride party, but trust me on this one -- "ain't nobody gonna hold me down." Let the glitter fall in my cowboy boots. It's Pride time in Nashville, Tennessee.
