Event description
Join the British Consulate-General in its fifth year of Atlanta Pride parade participation, followed by a reception at the Hotel Clermont

About this Event

The British Consulate-General Atlanta is looking forward to representing the UK Government in its sixth year of participation in Atlanta Pride. As one of the most progressive countries in Europe for LGBT rights, with more than 60 annual Pride events held in cities across the UK and 26 cities across the Americas, active participation in local Pride events demonstrates the UK’s global leadership as advocates for LGBTQ+ and human rights.

Note the following itinerary for Atlanta Pride:

Sunday, 13 October

~11:00 a.m. Parade Assembly

Meet the British Consulate-General at the staging area near the Civic Center MARTA Station. Monitor the Consulate’s Twitter at @UKinAtlanta on the day of the parade for information on the group’s location.

At this time, members of the British contingent will receive Love Is GREAT t-shirts, costumes (optional), flags, banners, signs, balloons, beads, temporary tattoos, and more as promotional collateral. A photographer will also be on hand to capture images of the group during staging and marching.
