Embrace Jax presents a family-friendly festival to bring awareness to “the fact that Jacksonville does not view all citizens equally.” EqualityFest features Al Letson, host of NPR’s “State of the Re-Union,” and the city’s Director of Downtown Engagement Tony Allegretti, who discuss local efforts being made to protect the LGBT community. Mama Blue, Real Job, Ritual Union, Shawn Lightfoot, Tough Junkie and Tropic of Cancer perform. Proceeds benefit JASMYN, a nonprofit youth services agency for LGBTQ. Intuition Ale Works' special Equality Ale, Taste Buds Express Food Truck and kids’ activities are featured. Free.
