Happy Pride Weekend Atlanta!!!

Yesterday was National Coming Out Day and now we roll right into Pride Weekend here in Atlanta.  A fitting way to kick off the celebration here is some information for some of the events. If you want to know more about parties that will be taking place check out the Project Q Atlanta website the link is at the bottom of this post. As  for myself I will be going to the Atlanta Buck's Rugby Tournament on Saturday I have friends that play on the Bucks as well as the St. Louis Crusaders. I want to show both teams some support and will be taking some photos. 

On Sunday we will probably take in the Parade in Midtown Atlanta not sure where we will be along the route. Probably some where not far from the MARTA stop. If you are going to the Festival or the Parade in Midtown, take MARTA it will be a lot less stressful and it's only $5 round-trip.

NOTE: The street signs around the school/pitch are CONFUSING. The school is located on Irwin Street but the street sign immediately in front of the school says “John Wesley Dobbs”. The school is located just east of the on-ramp to I-75/I-85 North.

The parade merges off Ralph McGill onto Peachtree Street and Travels north. It then turns east on to 10th Street and follows 10th Street to the Charles Allen Gate entrance of Piedmont Park, where the Parade officially ends.
The best Atlanta Pride things to do this weekend
