Black Gay Pride celebrates community, culture

BGP Community

Every year, Atlanta Black Gay Pride makes headlines for its headliners. But there is another side of Pride that invites attendees to come together to think about how to empower the community, plus celebrate identity through cultural events like author readings and film screenings.

This year, Pride goers can also visit Piedmont Park to participate in organized activities and free, live entertainment.

Far from criticizing nightlife, two of Black Gay Pride’s major community events are put on by leaders who also organize club events. This year perhaps sparks a movement to bring both sides of the coin together.
