Atlanta Pride In Pictures 2013

This weekend was the Gay Pride festival in Atlanta – coinciding with National Coming Out Day which falls on October 11th every year.

In most of the rest of the country, especially those with the highest gay populations (like NYC and San Francisco, the pride march / parade is typically held the third Sunday in June, to commemorate the Stonewall riots of 1969 that happened as a result of police raids in the gay bars in Greenwich village (for the crimes of cross-dressing) during memorial celebrations if Judy Garland’s death.

In Atlanta, the Pride season may have changed as a result of seasonal zoning laws for use of the Park- but the sentiment stayed the same.

Here are some photos from Sunday’s festivities during and after the annual parade. Atlanta is a great southern city with a unique and colorful GLBT culture that I am proud to be a part of.

ThePopularitéBug

Being a popular kid isn't easy,you have to be cautious about every move of yours because you know that all eyes are on you.Not just the eyes that look up to you but also the eyes that love to see you in pain.You might have your own list of followers but with this list there exists the "popularity starved crowd" who wants to replace you.But when reality bites these morons and they're back to square one,hurt and angry with themselves they try to make you the victim of their moment of high adrenaline,just to make you suffer because you're better.They try to clean their head by ruining your perfect life.What's more is right then you realize that none of your "friends" are what they appear to be.You're broken,depressed .You feel the need to talk to someone of your own kind,someone who won't judge you and that's when you can find me at thepopularitébug,I promise to do anything and everything to help you out of your problem!Amen.

AMERICAN MALE

Often described as a blog, an online magazine, a journal. When examined further the description changes and it becomes a project, an objective, a mission. American Male is one simple thing. It is a collection of different thoughts and experiences so come share yours and be part of the narrative.
