Atlanta Black Pride

Atlanta Black Pride was born in 1996 when a small group of African American lesbian and gay friends held a picnic over Labor Day weekend to celebrate their experience in Atlanta’s LGBT community. Each year, the group grew with others from the community and neighboring cities. 

Our Vision:

To affirm, solidify, and empower our community to work together toward a culture of diversity and acceptance.

Our Mission:

To educate, celebrate, promote self-empowerment and ensure that the social and cultural needs of LGBTQ+ individuals and families are met throughout the Atlanta Metropolitan area.

Our Focus:

  • We are providing safe, open, and cultural events for Atlanta’s LGBTQ+ community.
  • To promote, through advocacy and education, a better understanding of the LGBTQ+ community and the necessity or the equal treatment thereof, including bringing an end to discrimination and oppression against all persons based upon sexual orientation or gender identity and gender expression.
