OTP Pride kicked into overdrive on Saturday as hundreds took part in an all-day celebration to close out the four-day Marietta Rainbow Fest 2012 with a dance party and performance show at LeBuzz.
Our cameras caught up with the action on Saturday night, where the Divas Cabaret Circus, headed by Charlie Brown, was bolstered by other performances and contests, as well as speakers, munchies and plenty of cocktails and Jell-O shots.
The entire festival benefited Lost N Found Youth, which helps disenfranchised LGBT youth get off the street and move forward with their lives. Jonathan Murphy, the founder of the festival’s North Georgia Rainbow Coalition, thanked the revelers and expressed satisfied exhaustion on Sunday via Facebook.
“My deepest thanks to everyone who was a part of North Georgia Marietta Pride. It was a wonderful event. I am going to take a pause for the cause and will be back after this short break.”
