Thousands of people lined the streets of Midtown on Sunday for the 2012 edition of Atlanta's annual Pride parade. Grand Marshals for the parade included a majority gay women's fraternity, Blondie from the Clermont Lounge, and the "the Infamous Camp Drag Queens of the South," the Armorettes. Those marching in the parade and spectators alike brought out rainbow flags and wild attire, all in the sake of pride. Any protest was drowned out by the waves upon waves of support for the gay community in Atlanta.
