Health: The time is now

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.
