Femmes, bois, moms, male supporters, youngsters, veterans, little kids and of course, dykes gathered in Piedmont Park during Atlanta Pride on Saturday to show solidarity and build visibility during the annual Dyke March.
A pre-party in the afternoon led the participants to the Charles Allen gate as the sun fell on the day’s festivities. Led and tailed by police escorts, the crowd – fewer boobs and bikes than in years past, but just as lively – made its way down 10th Street toward Piedmont Avenue before wrapping it up back in the park.
