The Crew that Powers Mid-South Pride

Board of Directors

The achievements of Mid-South Pride would not be possible without the support of our community and the commitment of an all-volunteer board of directors. We are dedicated to creating spaces for people of all walks of life and all identities to participate. I you are interested in becoming a member of our board or one of our sub-committees, please contact us or attend one of our open meetings and introduce yourself!
