Atlanta’s Black Gay Pride an overall success with parties, community events

Black Gay Pride Sunday in the Park

Thousands of people flocked to the clubs, events, Piedmont Park and parties over Labor Day weekend to celebrate Atlanta’s Black Gay Pride, considered the largest in the nation.

The weekend started with a candlelight vigil sponsored by In the Life Atlanta, the sponsor of Black Gay Pride for the past 14 years. See a photo album of that event here.

There were community events such as the State of Black Gay America summit, sponsored by Xtreme Entertainment with keynote speaker Sharon Lettman, executive director of the National Black Justice Coalition, a national group focused on African-Americans and LGBT issues.
