Celebrating LGBTQIA+ Pride in Atlanta
Behind the Scenes • Published on October 20, 2020
Since the 1970s, people have been coming together all over America to celebrate Pride Month in June each year. Pride is a commemoration of the Stonewall Uprising of 1969 and celebrates the work it has taken, and acknowledges the work that is still needed, to achieve equal justice and equal opportunity for LGBTQIA+ Americans. In Atlanta, GA, home of Convoy’s second headquarters, however, they do things a little differently. Several years ago, Atlanta Pride was moved from its traditional dates in June, due to park and drought regulations in the city, to October, where they now host the nation’s largest celebration of National Coming Out Day every year.
This month, Convoy employees who are part of our LGBTQIA+ community in Atlanta teach us about what pride and identity mean to them. Check out this video to hear what they have to say:
