This weekend is PRIDE in Atlanta. PRIDE is always an exciting and emotional time for the LGBT community and our supporters/allies. This year’s PRIDE marks the 40th anniversary of these celebrations in Atlanta. I’ve lived in Atlanta all of my life, and I’ve grown up with the PRIDE celebrations. Every summer the community would take to the park to make their presence known, and to celebrate the diversity and unity of our collective people. There have been changes throughout the years, but the overall message has stayed the same – our community unites each year to celebrate who we are, how far we’ve come, and to look to where we want to be.
User Insight is partnering with the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) for a study on a new AIDS prevention website currently in development. The study is taking place on Tuesday, Oct. 12, at User Insight’s Sandy Springs offices and should take a little more than an hour to complete.
Gay Hispanic men who complete the survey will be given $80 for their time.
AID Atlanta’s Gay Men’s Outreach Coordinator Steven Igarashi will host a Happy Hour tonight at F.R.O.G.S. Cantina in Midtown for those interested in learning about AID Atlanta’s programs and tips on how to have safer sex. First time participants may qualify for a free "adult" beverage.
The meet-up is today between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. and is open to the public, although focused on Caucasian gay and bisexual men.
