Fall is Pride season in Georgia: Black Gay Pride just took place over Labor Day Weekend, Atlanta Pride is slated for Oct. 8-9, and in between are Savannah Pride, South Georgia Pride and Athens Pride.
But while many of these celebrations include musical acts, you don’t have to wait for an official festival to find your Pride-ful tunes this season.
From out LGBT performers to allies who have performed at Pride festivals here and around the country, the fall is filled with concerts to get queer hands clapping and bodies dancing.
As usual, lesbian singer-songwriters lead the list. Sept. 20 will be a tough choice for acoustic music fans as Atlanta’s own Doria Roberts plays a CD release party at Decatur CD, while Melissa Ferrick brings her stirring new album, “Still Right Here,” to nearby Eddie’s Attic. Also look for lesbian-inclusive “alternagrass” band Roxie Watson at the Five Spot on Sept. 23, one of several local shows for the band this season.
