A somber and spiritual opening to Pride unfolded Wednesday inside a Midtown church as a crowd of about 100 people took part in the Atlanta Pride AIDS Vigil.
Tucked inside the sanctuary of Saint Mark United Methodist Church along with the participants were several panels of the AIDS Memorial Quilt. OurSong and the Saint Mark UMC Choir performed during the event, which was organized by the AIDS Alliance for Faith & Health.
