Atlanta Pride anchors fall events calendar

Atlanta Pride

With Atlanta’s heavy fall social calendar still growing, several events are changing dates in the hopes of carving out their niche in a crowded scene.

Atlanta Pride and the AIDS Walk now anchor the fall season on the first and second weekends in October, while the Toy Party on Dec. 5 serves as the unofficial final big event of the year. Other popular events have changed times and dates this year. The Lesbian Health Initiative moved its Garden Party forward several weeks to Sept. 18, while the MEGA Family Project moved its annual conference back almost two months to Nov. 5.

“October seems to be a busy month, so we hope that by moving it to November we haven’t bumped up against anything else,” MEGA Executive Director Kathy Kelly said.
