A VIP reception and plenty of nightlife events are on today’s schedule for the world’s largest black LGBT Pride

Atlanta Black Gay Pride cranks up

After launching official Black Gay Pride festivities with a candlelight vigil at First Metropolitan Church last night, In the Life Atlanta hosts a VIP reception tonight at its host hotel, the Loews Hotel in Buckhead.
