Atlanta Pride

 
Atlanta Pride is a three-day celebration that takes place in October. The first, and perhaps most anticipated event, is the Kick-Off Party on the Friday of that weekend. It has been described as the glitziest party in Atlanta. Sunday is the day of the Parade which is a three-hour-long March through downtown, ending in the area of Piedmont Park. However, the Pride Parade is only one of many; several other parades take place during the month, including Atlanta Black Pride, the Dyke March, and the Trans March. These events are all well-attended, with at least 100,000 people coming out to show their Pride and support.
