Standing atop the big gay list of things to love about Atlanta Pride are two days in Piedmont Park and the sea of shining faces from all walks of LGBT life. Check out the smiles and styles.
After months of planning and lead-up events, plus a whole day of kickoff parties and kickoff afteparties, it was time on Saturday and Sunday for hundreds of thousands to hit the park appropriately rainbowed up, stripped down or otherwise festooned to show the world their Pride.
Our cameras caught the crowds filling in every nook and cranny from the marketplace to the stages, from tents and shadetrees, the streets and beyond.
