Nashville LGBT Chamber Pushes For Murfreesboro City Manager To Reverse Ban On Organizers Of “Family-Friendly” Pride Festival

The Tennessee Conservative [By Jason Vaughn] –

Following the “family-friendly” Boro Pride festival event hosted by Tennessee Equality Project Foundation (TEPF)  in September, Murfreesboro City Manager Craig Tindall banned the organizers from further use of city property when he found they had misrepresented the event in their application and violated city ordinances.

Now, the Nashville LGBT Chamber of Commerce has contacted the Murfreesboro City Mayor, Shane McFarland, voicing their support for TEPF and Boro Pride, and have asked Tindall to reverse his ban on the group.  They will also be speaking at the December 1st Murfreesboro City Council meeting.

Following a clip of a video from the Boro Pride event being shared on social media by Robby and Landon Starbuck, Tindall wrote a  letter to TEPF, that said in part:

“The event was promoted by your organization as “family friendly,” among other descriptions. Your permit application also stated your event was an “all ages community festival.” Having reviewed video of conduct during a portion of the event, I believe these promotional descriptions were misleading and your application submitted to the City contained material misrepresentation.”
