KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Knox Pride is planning to open a community outreach center in South Knoxville in July.
According to a press release, at a Knox Pride’s board meeting on Tuesday, members passed a motion to fund a physical location for Knox Pride.
More details on the location and name will be announced soon.
"Without a festival in 2021, we worked hard behind the scenes to get a community center in the works — and we are excited to execute this goal," Knox Pride officials said.
Knox Pride hopes to use the space for outreach, events, connective services, and a food pantry.
The board hopes that the community and outreach center will be a focal point for LGBTQ+ resources, events, group meetings, and more, a press release states.
