Atlanta is a huge city and sifting through the shindigs for Pride weekend can be stressful so we did it for you! Here’s a list of the best place to turn up for Pride. These events are officially endorsed by Atlanta Pride so you don’t have to worry about partying with folks who aren’t down for the cause.
Atlanta Pride Official Kickoff Party
This is the first official event of the weekend so you have to be there. The party is in the Georgia Aquarium so you get to party with the fishes.
The Georgia Aquarium, 18+
$30 Advance/$40 at the door
Sound Off™ x Atlanta Pride present: Silent Disco @ Establishment
If you throw a stone, you’ll hit 10 silent parties in Atlanta but disco parties are rare. Atlanta Pride and Sound Off teamed up to throw a silent disco Pride pre-party. Time to dust off your bellbottoms or hit the thrift store. Heads up, you have to reserve your headphones in advance.

PRIDE @ My Sister’s Room
MSR has the girl parties on lock. Tickets for the paid parties can be found at MySistersRoom.com. Go ahead and practice in your mirror. Or the shower. Or in the car while sitting in Atlanta’s parking lot — err, traffic.
