Purpose & Mission
We envision a world where persons with widely diverse gender and sexual identities are united, visible, and equal.
The main purpose of the Atlanta Pride Committee, a 501(c)(3) organization, is to advance unity, visibility and self-
esteem among lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, and transgender and queer persons and to promote a positive image
in the Atlanta area and throughout the Southeastern United States through community activities and services.
The mission of the Atlanta Pride Committee is to advance unity, visibility, and wellness among persons with widely
diverse gender and sexual identities through cultural, social, political, and educational programs and activities.
We value social justice, culture, self-esteem, history, health and wellness.
Atlanta Pride traces it’s roots back to the summer of 1970, one year after the historic Stonewall Riots in New York. Since that time, Atlanta Pride has grown both as an event and organization. Highlights from the past decades include incredible speakers, such as Coretta Scott King and Rep. John Lewis, and momentous occasions, such as the repeal of anti-gay sodomy laws.
