Atlanta Pride announces 2010 grand marshals The GA Voice Editors September 27, 2010 Uncategorized “Compiling a list of 120 grand marshals was no small task, but we feel like the people selected are a great representation of our city and state. Even though it meant releasing these names later than usual, the end product is worth the wait. What we’ve done is effectively create a march within the parade.” 2010 also marks the first year that straight allies will carry the title “grand marshal” which has traditionally gone to members of the LGBTQ community. Straight allies were previously “honorary marshals.” Legislative 40 Hon. Alex WanRep. Alisha Thomas MorganHon. Brian BatesHon.
