Welcome PACE Louisiana!

PACE is a nonpartisan organization that works to advance equality in Northwest Louisiana so that the LGBTQ+ community can lead open, honest, responsible, and safe lives at home and in the workplace.


We Believe

In a world where all people are free to express their gender identity and sexual orientation with pride.

Board Member Spotlight

We are thrilled to extend a warm welcome to our new Member at Large, Masson Tuggle! Since returning to Shreveport to pursue their graduate studies, Masson has been an ardent supporter of PACE. Masson met Kat Buckner (Technology Officer) at LSUS. They are both pursuing a degree in counseling.

Additionally, Masson operates a local crochet shop, "Masson's Queer Crafts," and showcased their creations at our recent Pride in the Park event. Masson has been actively involved in our community, participating in various local queer events, volunteering with the Rainbow PAC (now known as the Rainbow Movement), and generously contributing an item for sale in The Philadelphia Center's Auction Against AIDS. Please join us in extending a heartfelt welcome to our newest board member!
