WATCH: Day 1: Tennessee -- GLAAD's #SouthernStories Summer Tour


This week on GLAAD's video series, GLAAD: All Access, host Claire Pires is documenting every day of GLAAD's Southern Stories Summer Tour! Starting this past Friday in Nashville, GLAAD kicked off the tour with the inaugural Concert for Love & Acceptance presented by Ty Herndon and GLAAD. GLAAD is traveling by bus to six states in seven states to meet LGBT advocates and allies. 

In this video, you get a behind-the-scenes look at Day 1 of the tour. Starting in New York, you travel with us through the airport, in City Winery setting up for the Concert for Love & Acceptance, in the make-up room, front row at the concert, backstage at the meet-and-greet with Ty Herndon, and outside with local LGBT advocates and allies. 

The Concert for Love and Acceptance kicked off GLAAD's six-state Southern Stories bus tour as we hit the road and travel across the Deep South sharing stories of LGBT Southerners, allies, and advocates. 

GLAAD's Southern Stories Summer Tour are produced with support from Major Partner, Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, and Official Partner, Honey Maid. Follow @glaad on Twitter to keep up to date on all the latest Concert for Love and Acceptance and Southern Stories Summer Tour news!
