In addition to parties all over town, the official lineup includes four huge throwdowns this year. Through partnerships with Jungle for an opening night afterparty, party promoter Chris Coleman for a closing night with DJs Chus + Ceballos (photo), plus Curve magazine and Pandora Events for a gigantic women’s party, the Atlanta Pride Committee lets you Pride it up through the wee hours all weekend long. The whole fandango kicks off at the Georgia Aquarium with “Ru Paul’s Drag Race” alum Jujubee as well as DJs Corey Craig and Jay McCracken.
