About the Atlanta Pride Festival and Parade
The Atlanta Pride Festival was born in 1970 and has been an event for all Atlantans to celebrate the thriving LGBTQ+ community in Atlanta. This rainbow-clad extravaganza seeks to celebrate all points of the spectrum with vibrant costumes and attractions.
Atlanta Pride 2014 was a day of celebration — a day to truly celebrate who you are however you come. Whether you’re gay, straight, bisexual, transgender, Asian, African-American, White, Christian, or atheist, it was all about being who you are.
