PULASKI, Tenn. — Pride events have taken place all over the world this month but for one small town in Tennessee, the first Pride celebration ever took place.
Members and allies of the LGBTQ community rallied together in Pulaski, Tennessee to celebrate love.
Vendors and local artists, along with hundreds of people from many walks of life, were there to show their support.
Organizers say having this event creates more opportunities for the LGBTQ community in Pulaski.
"More and more people want change and with them wanting more change, you know, you have to take steps, you have to be brave, you have to have a heart of gold and you have to be fearless and that's where we are," said Layla Quinones, who owns and works as event director along with her partner, Ericka Quinones.
"And people are feeling like they want to be themselves more, which is wonderful because it's wonderful to be yourself," said Ericka Quinones.
