Mississippi Pride Celebration

 

The last year has been a whirlwind of wins and losses for the LGBTQ community across the nation and in Mississippi. Join Unity Mississippi in downtown Jackson for an afternoon of live music, speakers, and fabulous drag.

Our guest emcee will be Kit Williamson, a Jackson native, star on AMC’s Mad Men, and director of daytime Emmy-nominated EastSiders.

And The Echo, a modern, electronic band from Oxford; Teneia , an energetic folk/soul duo from Mississippi; Cynical Twins, a Jackson-based indie rock band; fabulous drag performances; and many more speakers and acts.

This event will close with a moment to commemorate the lives lost and those affected by the tragedy in Orlando.

The event is FREE and family-friendly. Food trucks, vendors, and organizations from around the state will be present.

Bring blankets, chairs, and coolers and spend the afternoon celebrating Pride!
