Please join OUTMemphis and the Tennessee Equality Project (TEP) for a series of Town Hall conversations featuring the 2019 candidates for Memphis City Mayor.

LGBTQ+ individuals live in every zip code, are represented in every race, ethnicity, ability level, religion, and age regardless of socio-economic status, citizenship, or education level. LGBTQ Southerners are adversely affected by the limitations in protections and services in health, housing, laws, spiritual resources, and education resources. In the 2019 Mayoral Race, the legal protections, health and wellness, and civic culture for LGBTQ people is vital to the future of Memphis. Bring your questions and concerns. Don’t miss this essential opportunity to voice the unique needs and ambitions of LGBTQ Memphians to our future mayor!

Each Town Hall will be moderated by OUTMemphis Executive Director Molly Quinn. Information on the city and state legislative agenda for LGBTQ issues will be on-hand, furnished by TEP. Town Halls are all ages and free and open to the public. Each event will feature a question and answer portion with the candidate and a meet and greet reception. RSVPs via Facebook are encouraged but not mandatory.
