This weekend was the Atlanta Pride Festival. Some friends and I decided to have a brunch get together before heading to see the parade. Being a native ATLien, I couldn’t believe this was my first experience at PRIDE. We accumulated a handful of beads a piece, candy and crackers, as well as plenty of clip on business logos we tossed immediately to “support the real cause.” It was inspiring to see this group of people that is considered a minority, fully represented with such support. The love and happiness poured into the people on the sidelines. Between the glitter drag queens, passionate firemen, and a neck heavy with beads I can’t think of a better way to spend a Sunday! How do you show your pride?
