Full Steam ahead with Pride
2020 PRIDE CELEBRATION POSTPONED TO 2021
(More details below)
It is with a heavy and saddened heart that the current Upper Cumberland Pride Board has voted to Postpone Pride 2020 until June 2021. With the states re-opening and the rise in Covid-19 cases in the Upper Cumberland area, we felt for the safety of all we would postpone.
In light of our decision, we also have taken the need for people in the region to feel “togetherness.” We are working on details for our very own “Virtual Pride”. Please stay tuned and feel free to reach out to us any needs, ideas, or questions you might have. Happy Pride Month.

Celebrating Diversity and Promoting Love
Upper Cumberland Pride (UCP) unites the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ+) and allied communities in support of inclusion, dignity, and equality of all people. We build safe, inclusive communities in Cookeville, Tennessee and the surrounding region, accepting and valuing individuals of all sexual orientations or gender identities.
Our core mission is to strengthen equality and increase awareness around issues important to our community such as health, safety and marriage equality. UCP celebrates the individuality and diversity of every person as we all strive for acceptance from parents, friends and society-at-large. We do this by providing opportunities for positive visibility in and around the community; providing a safe environment that permits the expression of diverse perspectives; and education for the purpose of cultivating harmony within the community.
