LGBTQ Atlanta stacks June with Stonewall Month events

Add this share
The time that most people set aside for Pride has grown in recent years. What was once a weekend in June grew to a busy week of events, then to a full month. Though its official Pride celebration isn’t until October, Atlanta wholeheartedly takes part in Stonewall Month.

This year, many organizers are working to make up for the Pride virtual insanity of 2020. We already told you about some Atlanta Braves and Atlanta Pride plans, but the schedule just keeps getting bigger.

From venerable galas and traditional parties, to festivals and arts rosters, we gathered the best of an ever-growing list of special events that celebrate being LGBTQ in June.
