John Grady Burns

A local business owner and Natchez native, John Grady Burns is proud to call Natchez home and believes that his hometown is a welcoming and tolerant community. After leaving in Atlanta for many years, John Grady longed for the familiar faces and warm hearts that he grew up around.

Greatly impacted by the untimely loss of a young friend, John Grady was inspired to found Y’all Means All – Natchez to ensure that the message of tolerance and acceptance is widely proclaimed throughout our town.

Michael Gray

New to Natchez, but also a child of the South, Michael grew up in Louisiana. He and his partner were looking for a new home and Natchez welcomed them in. Prichael has spent two decades in hotel management and two decades in real estate in southern California. He was a trainer recruiter and manager for many national brands.

His book, "What's Next?" is on itunes, Amazon and Lulu .com. He and Gerry enjoy refurbishing their historic firehouse building in downtown Natchez.

Troy Bickford

Troy grew up in nearby Baton Rouge, often vacationing in the oxbow lakes near Natchez. A Natchez resident since 2016, Troy and his partner Doug were welcomed to town with hospitality and open-mindedness. Owners of two successful businesses, Troy and Doug want to share the warm Natchez welcome

from which they have benefited and spread the message of hope and tolerance .
