Experience Chattanooga Pride
Who We Are
Chattanooga Pride is the LGBTQ+ Pride Festival for the greater Chattanooga area. Managed by the 501(c)3 non-profit Tennessee Valley Pride. Our volunteer board works year round to bring the LGBTQ+ community and our allies together for events, various causes, and to build networks of support which benefit all of us.
Tennessee Valley Pride, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization designed to celebrate diversity in Chattanooga, TN and surrounding cities. Our goal is to combine the wonderful resources of the LGBT [Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, or Transgender] people of our area and reach out to the community with dignity and respect. The board is committed to raising awareness, educating and strengthening the community, and improving the human condition.
Whether it's hosting events for the LGBTQ+ community or helping others to better serve LGBTQ+ individuals, we believe in making sure everyone has the opportunity to thrive through connection to the people and places that support them.
Education is the greatest tool we have to help overcome the prejudices many members of our community face. We actively teach ourselves, our community, and our allies about the diverse identities that are part of the LGBTQ+ rainbow.
We fully support efforts to improve the quality of life and defend the rights of all LGBTQ+ people. Chattanooga Pride opposes prejudice and discrimination in all forms.
