ATL WEEKEND PREVIEW

                    ATLANTA CAN HAVE A COMPLETELY DRY WEEKEND OR A WEEKEND FULLY LOADED WITH EVENTS &  THIS WEEKEND IS NO EXCEPTION.  ITS THE OFFICIAL ATLANTA PRIDE CELEBRATION &  ALSO CLARK ATLANTA UNIVERSITY’S HOMECOMING. IN PREVIOUS YEARS I HAVE HAD THE PLEASURE TO PARTICIPATE IN BOTH & I MUST ADMIT IVE HAD A SPECTACULAR TIME.
                 THE ATLANTA PRIDE EVENT KICKS OFF TONITE, AT THE GEORGIA AQUARIUM WITH HOST JUJU BEE, FROM  THE HIT SHOW RU-PAULS DRAG RACE. YOU CAN PARTY AND PLEASURE WITH THEM FROM 6:30PM TO 11:30PM, THEN HEAD TO MIDTOWN’S NIGHTCLUB THE JUNGLE AND DANCE YOUR LIFE AWAY UNTIL 3AM. SATURDAYS EVENTS INCLUDE MANY THINGS RANGING FROM THE  CAR & BIKE SHOW, TO  A LITERARY SHOWCASE & EVEN A DYKE MARCH DANCE PARTY. MY FAVORITE DAY IS SUNDAY, IT IS THE ANNUAL ATLANTA PRIDE PARADE AND IT BEGINS AT 1:00PM SHARP AT THE CORNERS OF PEACHTREE STREET AND RALPH MC GILL. THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE NORMALLY SHOW UP, SO ITS BEST YOU BE ON TIME. THE DAY CONTINUES WITH A STARLIGHT CABARET AT THE COCA COLA STAGE & ALSO ONE FINAL PARTY AT CLUB OPERA. SHOW YOUR PRIDE, COME OUT AND BE APART OF ANNUAL EVENT. FOR MORE INFORMATION ON PRIDE WEEKEND VISIT http://atlantapride.org/
