The Atlanta Pride Run is excited to return in-person at beautiful Piedmont Park on June 20, 2021!  (There is still a virtual option)  For over 30 years the objective of the Atlanta Pride Run has been to generate awareness for the LGBTQ+ community in the greater Atlanta area, and to fundraise for much-needed community partners.  With COVID-19 taking its toll on our community over the past year, this mission is more important than ever. 
We invite you to join us this year, and reconnect safely.
