Black Gay Pride empowers over Labor Day weekend

American Idol star Frenchie Davis

Atlanta earns its reputation as a black gay mecca year-round, but the city really pulls out all the stops over Labor Day Weekend for what is billed as the world’s largest Black Gay Pride celebration.

The celebration will draw tens of thousands to Atlanta for a long weekend of community empowerment and, yes, plenty of partying.

The non-profit In the Life Atlanta formed in 1996 to bring a cultural and educational component to Black Gay Pride, which began as an informal network of house parties, nightlife and other gatherings.
