Tri-State Area

The Center For Black Equity (CBE) has recognized TriState Black Pride as the official Black Pride for Memphis, TN. This recognition is based on three factors: Capacity, Community Support and, Commitment to the CBE’s mission and values. After an extensive four-month review, which included an interview with The Cathedral Foundation and discussions with members of the Memphis Black LGBTQ community, the CBE is convinced that The Cathedral Foundation will set a high standard for an inclusive, well executed Black Pride event for the Memphis, TN metropolitan area.
