Pop and dance sensation — and gay favorite — Kimberly Locke will headline this year’s Atlanta Pride Festival in Piedmont Park set for the weekend of Oct. 9-10, the Atlanta Pride Committee announced today.
Locke will perform Oct. 9. This year’s fest marks the 40th anniversary of Atlanta Pride and is being held during the weekend of National Coming Out Day on Oct. 11.
A No. 1 Billboard recording artist, Locke rose to fame after competing on “American Idol,” finishing third after Ruben Stoddard and now Clay Aiken.
