To nominate an individual or group to be a Grand Marshal in the 2017 Atlanta Pride Parade, please complete this form.
ALL NOMINATIONS ARE DUE BY APRIL 24, 2017.
You are welcome to submit multiple nominees, but each separate nomination requires a new form to be completed: only one group or individual is allowed per form.
Grand marshal selections are based upon the merits of the nominee and not the quantity of nomination forms submitted.
Nominees do not have to identity as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer. We welcome heterosexual allies as nominees.
Nominees are not required to be political in nature.
Nominees of all gender identities and expressions are welcome.
Individual nominees must reside in Georgia. Organizational nominees must be based in Georgia. The Atlanta Pride Committee (APC) encourages the nomination of individuals or groups that have ties to our local and state communities.
While it is not required that you personally know the individual you are nominating, we encourage it. An inability to provide contact information about the nominee may make it difficult for APC to get in touch with the nominee if they are selected to serve.
APC DOES NOT ACCEPT NOMINATIONS OF INDIVIDUALS CURRENTLY CAMPAIGNING FOR POLITICAL OFFICE, AS THIS MAY GIVE THE APPEARANCE OF AN ENDORSEMENT.
If a group is nominated and selected as a Grand Marshal, the organization will receive four VIP/Sponsor Party tickets and four VIP Festival Passes and will have the ability to have two members ride in the APC-provided convertible in the Atlanta Pride Parade on October 15, 2017.
