Celebrating Pride and Building Futures with Tennessee Fertility Institute


At Tennessee Fertility Institute (TFI), we are gearing up for another exhilarating Pride Month in 2024! We take immense pride in recognizing and honoring the incredible diversity, resilience, and love within the LGBTQ+ community. This month is not only about acknowledging the progress made towards equality but also about championing the rights and dreams of every individual to create and nurture a family, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

As we prepare for the exciting month ahead, we can’t help but remember our experience at last year’s electric Nashville Pride Festival & Parade.

Reflecting on Last Year’s Pride Festival

“The overall experience of going to Pridefest last year was amazing! I loved the inclusive atmosphere of the whole event. It felt like a community of people celebrating their diversity and expressing themselves in a welcoming environment. The most exciting part of the experience was being able to take part in what the Pride community has to offer, which is the sense of love for everyone.” – Johnny Miranda, Andrologist

“Pridefest was a wonderful experience last year. We were happy to be able to speak with so many individuals (as well as entire organizations) who were interested in our fertility services. It was an honor to be invited to participate in such a joyful and inclusive event!” – Dr. Jane Ruman, Reproductive Endocrinologist and Infertility Specialist

“I was able to see former and current patients, help provide resources to transitioning young adults and their family members about fertility preservation, and answer general questions to couples seeking support in starting a family! I [got] to help amazing people reach their goals of building a family!” Chelsea Ehinger, Fertility Nurse Coordinator & Third-Party Reproduction Coordinator

“The overall experience at Pridefest last year was incredibly uplifting. It felt like such a safe space where everyone could truly be themselves without fear of judgement. Despite the sweltering heat, everyone was so positive! The sense of joy was contagious!” – Rita Roper, IVF Coordinator

Last year, our participation at the Nashville Pride Festival was a resounding success. The energy was palpable, the love was abundant, and the sense of community was truly heartwarming. Our booth became a gathering place for many, where visitors could learn about our LGBTQ+ fertility solutions, grab some fun Pride swag, and share their stories and family-building dreams with us.
