Atlanta Pride Committee Executive Director, Jamie Fergerson, said, “As always, selecting our Grand Marshals is a wonderful way for us to recognize those, often unsung heroes, who do so much for our community.”
Fergerson continued, “Our organization works hard to offer a slate of Grand Marshals from the wide range of diverse activists and community members among us. That commitment has held fast, and we believe that we have done that again this year.”
She noted, “If you know any of this year’s Grand Marshals, please take a moment to congratulate them on their much-deserved recognition. And if you don’t know them, take a little time to get to know these honorees and their work. It is a testament to the outstanding efforts in supporting our community. The APC is so proud to be able to bring a small amount of attention to their accomplishments by giving them a place of honor in leading our 2018 Parade.”
