Not only is Atlanta Pride one of the oldest celebrations (started in 1971), it has it all: a festival, concerts, a dyke march, a trans march, and even cooperative events with the aquarium.
Atlanta Pride traces its roots back to the summer of 1970, one year after the historic Stonewall Riots in New York. Since that time, Atlanta Pride has grown both as an event and organization. Highlights from the past decades include incredible speakers, such as Coretta Scott King and Rep. John Lewis, and momentous occasions, such as the repeal of antigay sodomy laws.
Thanks to the folks at the Atlanta Pride Committee for all the great photos from their volunteers. Learn more at AtlantaPride.org, and follow the group on Facebook.
