The Atlanta Pride Committee today announced the event lineup for the upcoming Stonewall Month of activities.
Though the traditional Pride season occurs during June to coincide with the anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, the Atlanta Pride festival has been held in October for the past four years. Pride organizers have also made an effort to create a schedule of events during the traditional Pride month.
Atlanta Pride will be held Oct. 11-13 at Piedmont Park.
“While many in our community bemoan our move to October for the Atlanta Pride Festival, we are excited to commemorate the anniversary of the 1969 riots at the Stonewall Inn with a robust offering of educational programs, social gatherings, and community activities that run the gamut of the LGBTQ community in Atlanta,” said Atlanta Pride Executive Director Buck Cooke.
