Fun and Fellowship Expected at Atlanta Pride 2011
Atlanta – Georgia Democrats will be represented by four different groups at one of the longest-running LGBT celebrations in the nation, Atlanta Pride 2011.
Volunteers from the Democratic Party of Georgia LGBT Caucus, Stonewall Democrats, Fulton County Democrats and the Young Democrats of Georgia will be on hand to register voters at the festival and march in the popular Pride Parade. The different groups represent a broad cross-section of Georgia progressives- of every color, every gender, from every corner of the state.
“Anyone who wants to march in the parade or help us register new voters is welcome!” said Louis Elrod, President of the Young Democrats of Georgia. “We are an inclusive party and this is an inclusive event.”
“Its great for all four organizations to be involved in Pride. The LGBT community is essential to our success not just in an election year but every year,” said George Johnson, LGBT Caucus Chair of the Democratic Party of Georgia.
Atlanta Pride is scheduled for October 8 and 9 at Piedmont Park in Atlanta. Volunteer opportunities with Georgia Democrats include two hour shifts at the Democratic booth from 10 am – 6pm on Saturday and Sunday, and marching with Georgia Democrats at the parade on Sunday.
