The Atlanta Pride Committee honored a diverse slate of eight Pride parade grand marshals at an upscale reception in Buckhead.

Pride unveiled the grand marshals in June but formally introduced them at Saturday’s reception at the JW Marriott Atlanta Buckhead. The eight activists, faith leaders, legal minds, educators and organizations will lead the Pride parade on Oct. 14.

The grand marshals include Micky Bee, Monica Helms, Rabbi Josh Lesser, Scott Titshaw, Craig Washington, Angels in Action/Shane Garner, The Ponce Center and Black Mama’s Bailout.
