Happy Pride Atlanta

This weekend is Pride for city of Atlanta and the surrounding GBLT communities. Though in the larger picture this also coincides with National Coming Out Day which is on 11th of October, I think that is Monday. The weather is supposed to be great; sunny and with highs in the mid 80's, the evenings will cool off to the 50's so you will want a sweatshirt or maybe sweater to cut the chill.

Most of the festival will take place around Piedmont Park in Midtown Atlanta, parking will be fairly scarce so I recommend taking Marta. We'll probably walk around on Saturday, since I have to work on Sunday so I will miss the parade :-(  Which is the best part in my opinion. This is a family event and a lot of fun no matter if you are Gay or Straight. I do recommend getting there early to get a really good spot.

On greater scheme of things lets not forget that we have a lot to cerebrate and a lot of goals to work towards to over come HATE. Yesterday was the  anniversary of the horrid event that took place in Laramie, WY where a young man named Matthew Shepard's life was taken because of HATE. Hate is a black spot in our comminties and can not be tolerated. So to all of the hate filled religious wingnuts that like to show up at our events, STAY HOME!



But if you have an open mind and heart please come, celebrate with us and have some fun.I hope to see you there.
