Out FRONT Meet your 12 Atlanta Pride parade grand marshals
A GROUP OF ACTIVISTS, POLITICIANS, FAITH LEADERS, artists and organizations have the honor of leading this year’s Atlanta Pride parade as grand marshals.
Atlanta Pride Committee made the announcement on June 3 as a slew of Stonewall Month events began.
“Our organization is proud of our effort and commitment to select
grand marshals from the wide range of diverse activists and community members among us,” said Jamie Fergerson, executive director of the Atlanta Pride Committee. “It is important to us that our slate of grand marshals represent all the varied and beautiful segments of our queer community and our allies.” The parade is set for Oct. 13 during the 49th annual Atlanta Pride. Here’s more about each grand marshal, via Atlanta Pride Committee:
