From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for an AMAZING Atlanta Pride!
We are overwhelmed with immense love, appreciation, and pride in our very queer community! From the glitz and glam sessions at the Pre-Parade Breakfast to the singing and marching in the parade, we relished in every single moment we got to experience the boundless amount of care and kindness that everyone expressed for each other. It was an honor to see you all take up space in the streets of Atlanta with your shouting, singing, stomping, and dancing! As always, queerness is both resistance and love. ✊🏽🌈💖😭
