Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, part of IHG Hotels & Resorts luxury and lifestyle portfolio, today announced the lineup of BrunchOUT 2023, the brand’s beloved annual drag brunch series. In partnership with long-term nonprofit partner, The Trevor Project, the series kicks off in Nashville this June for Pride Month with additional events taking place throughout 2023.

Since Kimpton’s inception, we have supported the LGBTQ+ community and created spaces where people can not only gather and connect, but also feel comfortable and embraced for being their most authentic selves.”
