About Atlanta Pride
Established in , it is one of the oldest and largest pride parades in the United States. The annual pride week began when a group of lesbian, gay men, drag queens, and gender non-conformists joined together. At the time police raids on gay bars were common because homosexual sex was illegal in all but one state in the United States.
