VIEW MORE PHOTOS | East Side Pride Picnic @ Milam Park
For the second year in a row, the burgeoning East Side Pride took the last weekend in June to host an outdoor Pride picnic for those LGBT Atlantans who are out, proud and just east of the Perimeter.
Saturday’s event in Clarkston’s Milam Park found couples, gay parents with their kids, and even popular lesbian DJ Duck enjoying the summer sunshine, the playground and the barbecue grill in an all-are-welcome atmosphere of camaraderie.
The group touts its diversity of the LGBT residents in its area with regular meetings, outings and special events, but the Pride picnic – now the organization’s signature annual event – is the proof in the pudding, and our gallery of photos are the photographic evidence.
The park pumped with the beats of DJ Duck and teamed with LGBTs of every ilk, color and creed taking advantage of a kid-friendly play zone, an area for LGBT and allied vendors and non-profits and the piece de resistance, a potluck-style feast.
