LGBTQ Atlanta kicks off Pride with Georgia Aquarium blowout

Add this share

It was Atlanta Pride time once again, and that meant jumpstarting the weekend with a kickoff party at the Georgia Aquarium on Friday.

The sold out event included admission to the AT&T Dolphin Celebration. DJ Kevin Durard spun dance anthems in the Aquarium Atrium while VJ Mark Gordon kept it all ‘80s party music in the Oceans Ballroom.

Can’t get enough aquarium party pics? Check out these galleries from the kickoff party over the years.
