The city of Atlanta glowed in full color on the final day of the Atlanta Pride Festival Sunday- with a little rain in the forecast unable to keep the rainbows at bay! The Atlanta Pride Festival is one of the largest Pride festivals in the Southeast and concluded with the 49th annual Atlanta Pride Parade on Sunday.
Spearheaded by DevOps Valarie Regas, the Atlanta US Intelligence team took part in a variety of Pride activities supporting the LGBTQ community over the weekend, including the Mayor’s reception, the official Pride kickoff at the Georgia Aquarium and, of course, the culminating event, the parade. Incoming Employee Lead for Pride@airbus, Franklin Ortiz, made the trip from DC to learn about all the Atlanta Pride festivities. He said he and his husband will definitely be back next year.
Thank you to Valarie for all your hard work organizing!
