Atlanta celebrates Stonewall Week

Earlier that Saturday, a bevy of events drew LGBT Atlantans and their supporters to Piedmont Park and the State Capitol.

The 20th annual Atlanta Pride Run drew 487 runners, who stepped off from the pool area in Piedmont Park. The fastest time went to Enrique Sanchez, while Katarina Dubcova finished first among the female runners.

Also on June 26, the Sylvia Rivera Stonewall Community Brunch — sponsored by Transgender Individuals Living Their Truth, the Juxtaposed Center for Transformation and the Atlanta Pride Committee —focused on the contributions transgender people have made to the LGBT civil rights movement. About 50 people attended the event at Central Presbyterian Church.

After the brunch, Atlanta Pride hosted the “Be Visible, Make a Statement” rally and community art project at the State Capitol. There was also an informal picnic in Piedmont Park.
