GA Spotlight: North Georgia Rainbow Coalition The GA Voice Editors June 25, 2010 GA Spotlight Now, for the first time, Marietta will also have its own Pride celebration. The Marietta Rainbow Festival, scheduled for July 24, is a project of the new North Georgia Rainbow Coalition. The new LGBT group is headed up by Johnathon Murphy, the president and managing partner of LeBuzz, who believes it’s high time people realize that there is a vibrant community north of the perimeter. The theme for 2010 is “Our Declaration of Independence.” “We may be by ourselves, but we are never alone,” the Rainbow Coalition says. “We recognize and celebrate our diversity together. We stand now with Pride in North Georgia and declare that we will now lead and never follow.” The July 24 festival will take place in the parking lot of LeBuzz, with master of ceremonies Nicole Paige Brooks and DJs, bands and drag shows. The festivities then move inside LeBuzz for a dance party until 3 a.m. North Georgia Rainbow Coalitionwww.rainbowgeorgia.com Marietta Rainbow FestivalSaturday, July 24Noon – 11 p.m. in the parking lot of LeBuzz585 Franklin Road, Marietta, GA 30067 SHARE ON Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
