The North Georgia Rainbow Coalition wanted to make Marietta Pride as wide-reaching as possible and raise the most money possible for the Health Initiative, Georgia’s LGBT health organization. They’ve christened the celebration the “Season of Pride.”
The NGRC’s goal is that this longer Pride format will be successful enough that they will be able to move next year’s event back to a one-day event on June 20 and include a 5K Equality Run, family friendly celebrations in Glover Park and several after parties. And then they would hold Marietta Pride every June thereafter. Last year’s event was held over a July weekend.
