2013 ATLANTA PRIDE FESTIVAL SCHEDULED FOR NATIONAL COMING OUT DAY
The Atlanta Pride Festival will be returning to Piedmont Park in 2013. The Southeast’s largest Pride Festival will be hosted October 12-13, which coincides with National Coming Out Day. This year's events are in early planning stages and more info will be available as October approaches. Here are some notes from 2012:
The Atlanta Pride Festival, in 2012 was the largest event in the United State to coincide with >National Coming Out Day, which is observed on October 11>. Other established community events that take place around the same timeframe include The Health Initiative’s Garden Party, Out on Film and the Atlanta AIDS Walk.
Leading up to The Atlanta Pride Festival 2012, APC organized events and activities throughout 2012 to build enthusiasm for the festival, including special events during the month of June to commemorate the anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. Additionally, the partnership with the Georgia Aquarium, for the Kickoff Party, continued as a part of the 2012 Pride celebrations.
A full schedule of programming and parties is still being developed for Atlanta Pride Week. For updates and information about events
