Want to nominate a Grand Marshal?
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.
Grand Marshal selections are based upon the merits of the nominee and not the quantity of nomination forms submitted.
Nominees of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender 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 strong ties to our local and state communities, though national and international work will be considered as a part of the nomination.
While it is not required that you personally know the individual you are nominating, we do encourage that you have some personal interaction with the individual / group. 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. If we are unable to contact the individual / group, they will not be able to serve as Grand Marshal.
Being a Grand Marshal of the Atlanta Pride Parade, is an honor and is meant to recognize individuals and organizations within the LGBTQ+ Community for their contributions, particularly within the state of Georgia. Therefore, APC does not pay appearance fees or otherwise financially compensate Grand Marshals for their participation.
APC does NOT accept nominations of any individuals currently running for a political office as this may give the appearance of an endorsement.
To nominate an individual or organization to be a Grand Marshal of the Atlanta Pride Parade, a completed Nomination Form must be submitted.
