Happy Pride Atlanta

It's here Atlanta! It's Pride weekend, the weather looks to be great all weekend long with daytime temps in the high 70's and evenings in the mid 50's. I personally love the move that took place a few years ago it was horrid when it was in June with humidity and temps in the 90's, this is a lot more comfortable. The parade will be in Midtown Atlanta @1PM it will run down Peachtree st, turn on to 10th Street and continue in to Piedmont Park. All weekend long there will be festivities at the park and of course every club and bar will be celebrating. You can find out more information about the events in the guide below

Can’t make the Pride parade? Watch it online:
If you’re one of the unfortunate gays who can’t see the Atlanta Pride parade in person on Sunday as it winds its way through Midtown, well that sucks for you. It’s an experience not to be missed, so here’s another option. For the first time, you can watch a live webcast. The Atlanta Pride Committee says 11Alive will stream the parade on its website
The one event I do plan on attending is the Rugby Match between Atlanta Bucks v. St. Louis Crusaders. Yes gay men do play rugby among other sports, sorry to break another sterotype that we are a bunch of nelly sport hating queens. I have friends on both sides so I haven't decide who I'm going to be  rooting for I'm hoping it's a good game. This will be my first rugby match and I really don't know crap about how it's played. I've played soccer and touch football so I'm guessing it's a weird mutation of those two sports ;-)
Here is the info if you are interested in checking it out.

I hope you show your support for the community and get out this weekend. You don't have to be part of the LGBTQ to partake in the festivities. Everything at Piedmont park is family friendly so come out enjoy the nice weather and have some fun. Show the pathetic Biblethumping hatemongers that you will not be intimidated and you are proud of yourself and your friends. Because I know they will be there preaching their hate-filled fire and brimstone sermons. Personally I find them pretty pathetic and comical.

Happy Pride Atlanta!!!
