X Block Party fills 10th and Piedmont with Pride

Add this share
Steps from Atlanta’s rainbow crosswalk on Sunday came another local icon– the annual Pride Block Party hosted by X Midtown.

This was the event usually reserved for parade viewing. When those plans were yanked, X was one of the venues that stepped up to Pride in a big way with a world-class slate of entertainment in the absence of Atlanta Pride’s festival and parade

Capping a busy week of internationally recognized DJs and drag queens, X Midtown created a Pride Sunday for the books. Grammy winning remixer Dave Aude and Grammy-nominated producer Chris Cox laid down the beats. Our photo gallery below captures just some of the action.
