Tennessee’s Scenic City will feature an array of festivities with many LGTBQ-owned restaurants and businesses opening their doors to visitors both near and far.
The plush Dwell Hotel, recognized as a World Rainbow Hotel and signaling to the LGBTQ+ community that it’s a welcoming environment, is one of Chattanooga’s many hotels welcoming Pride attendees.
