Grand Marshals

Nominations are closed for 2015. Thank you to all of the community members who took the time to submit excellent nominations. Look for an announcement of the 2015 Atlanta Pride Grand Marshals in June as a part of Stonewall Month.

 

NOMINATION PROCESS

Nominations are being accepted for 2015 Atlanta Pride Grand Marshals through May 18, 2015. Click here to nominate an individual or an organization to be a Grand Marshal after you have reviewed the guidelines below.

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.

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 an organization is nominated and selected as a Grand Marshal, the group 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 11, 2015.
