Thank you, Memphis, for making our 30th Anniversary Celebration a success!

This past Saturday, OUTMemphis and a few hundred of our closest friends gathered at The Cadre Building downtown to celebrate our 30th Anniversary as an organization. There were plenty of cold drinks, delicious food options, and a plethora of locally donated auction items to bid on.

This event could not have been at all possible without the generosity of our community, our donors, and our volunteers, all of whom helped to make this a wonderful celebration of 30 years of service to the LGBTQ community of the Mid-South.
