Out & About: Atlanta Pride 2011 Edition!

Whoa chile….
I am exhausted. Two days of beautiful people, marches, partying and taking pictures. While I had SO much fun, I am SO glad this weekend is finally over..
Since moving  back to Georgia in 2008, I have been to every pride since, but this was by far my favorite!
I proudly volunteered at the transgender booth which consist of T.I.L.T.T. INC, Justaposed Center for Transformation, and Someone Cares’s ‘Real T’ which provided testing by the lovely Lisa Newsom!
The booth also spotlighted a slew of talented artists/authors including Buddah Balenciaga, Jenttha J. Baines and Sean La Mont.
I also caught the last leg of an amazing concert at the Coca Cola stage which featured gay singer DEMIZES (who did an amazing Beyonce tribute), Wynter Gordon (Even though she claimed she was sick, she rocked her mini set with ‘Dirty Talk’ & ‘Toyfriend! Of course, the highlight of the night was witnessing Powerhouse diva Deborah Cox rock the stage in a fringed dress drippin in diamonds (at least thats what it look like on stage..lol), as she strut her stuff and sang all of her greatest hits! Homegirl STILL got it and looked amazing!
Aside from that, I also played photographer. I must have harassed hundreds of people and I think maybe two people declined to be photographed (for employement related reasons). My goal and purpose were to capture people of ALL walks of life and spotlight the diversity that does exist in the great city of Atlanta.
It was my pleasure to capture so many beautiful people.  Some are my dear friends,some were local (& international celebrities!), most are merely strangers. ALL are STARS in my book! 
It is important to know that we are ALL beautiful people of such a wonderful community. The sooner we know this and embrace it, the better our community will be!
