25th Atlanta Black Gay Pride events set for Labor Day weekend

While the Atlanta Pride Festival and Parade has been canceled, the Atlanta Black Gay Pride weekend will continue on. The two celebrations are separate events.

ATLANTA — Atlanta Black Pride celebrations will happen Labor Day weekend with COVID-19 protocols in place.

According to Atlanta Black Pride's website, they will have a plethora of activities taking place over the weekend with vendors, workshops, and more. They will be at Central Park on Saturday and Sunday. 

Event organizers said health protocols would be in place. They put together a COVID-19 plan to submit to the city before the park permit was granted. Social distancing and mask guidelines are required for indoor events. Vendors at the park will be spaced out.

Some said there were some patrons confused about whether or not the event would be held this year because other celebrations in the city had been canceled. While Atlanta Black Gay Pride will take place in September, the Atlanta Pride Festival and Parade that was scheduled for October has been canceled due to COVID-19 concerns. These are separate events.
