About Atlanta Pride

Atlanta Pride, also colloquially (and formerly) called the Atlanta Gay Pride Festival, is a week-long annual lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBTpride festival held in Atlanta, Georgia (United States). Established in 1971, it is one of the oldest and largest pride festivals in the United States.[1] According to the Atlanta Pride Committee, as of 2017, attendance had continually grown to around 300,000.[2] Originally a pride held in June, Atlanta Pride has been held in October every year since 2008, typically on a weekend closest to National Coming Out Day.


Atlanta Pride Eucharist

Integrity is organized through over 60 chapters[6] across the nation. Integrity's chapters are groups of 10 or more members in an area or diocese who gather monthly or quarterly to promote welcome and inclusion in their areas. They may work in just one parish, in a city, or in an entire diocese. Here are some things that Integrity's chapters provide.
  • Fellowship for LGBT Episcopalians and their friends
  • Freedom to worship openly as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, in communities or dioceses where it's still uncomfortable to be open
  • Advocates for change in parishes and dioceses that aren't fully inclusive and incorporating
  • Witnesses of God's inclusive love to communities around them, through events, service and presence
  • Aids to parishes interested in becoming Believe Out Loud congregations
