The APC announced today that their nomination period for the 2021 Parade Grand Marshal's will open on May 20 and will run through June 15.
While the Atlanta Pride Committee works to acknowledge the efforts of individuals and non-profit organizations by selecting several each year to serve as Grand Marshals for their annual parade, this year's criteria include a focus that reflects on the past year.
Specifically, they are looking to honor those that helped us all survive and thrive in 2020. Who was on the front lines assisting those with COVID? Who was working hard to protect voter rights? Who was protesting racial injustice and working toward equality?
It may have been a first responder, a community activist, someone supporting in the virtual space, teachers, or a volunteer delivering meals. Please nominate a deserving individual or organization so that their work can be acknowledged during the Atlanta Pride Festival this year....
