Kristine W’s performance comes on Saturday and is part of her tour to promote her new album, “New & Number Ones.” According to the APC, “her new album both celebrates and adds to a legacy that includes her record setting streak of most consecutive No. 1 hits on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart.”
Atlanta Pride plans to roll out its entire line up in September. But so far the APC has given us a sizable peek into what to expect during the fest in Piedmont Park.
We know about the key music acts. At least most of them.
But what else do we know about the 2012 Atlanta Pride fest?
• The opening night party on Friday, Oct. 12, is at the Georgia Aquarium and tickets are selling fast.
• Honorary grand marshals this year are rugby stud and straight ally Ben Cohen, founder of the StandUp Foundation that seeks to eliminate bullying and homophobia in sports; and Stuart Milk, nephew of Harvey Milk, one of the world’s most renowned gay activists who was assassinated in 1978.
Cohen, whose StandUp Foundation is based in Atlanta, is regularly seen at Atlanta events and last year participated with the Atlanta Bucks in the Atlanta Pride parade.
Stuart Milk has made a name for himself in LGBT advocacy and as co-founder and board president of the Harvey Milk Foundation.
