Femmes, bois, moms, newbies, veterans and of course, dykes gathered in Piedmont Park on Atlanta Pride Saturday to show solidarity, empower women and build visibility during the annual Dyke March.

Lesbians of every stripe came together at the Charles Allen gate as the sun began to set on the first day of Atlanta Pride. Some of them also came with their male supporters, their parents, and their kids in tow. Led and tailed by police escorts, caboosed by a trolley, and filled with rowdy partiers in between, the crowd – fewer boobs and bikes than in years past, but just as lively – made its way through the streets around the park.
