On Sunday, September 1st, Atlanta’s Piedmont Park will welcome the 8th Pure Heat Community
Festival; also known as a free “day of unity.” The free cultural event is equipped with market and food vendors, live celebrity and local performers, entertainment, educational forums, prizes & giveaways – all designed to bring together the spirit of community, pride, and vision. In partnership with The Vision Community Foundation, a portion of proceeds from the weekend’s festivities are used to benefit homeless LGBT youth and those infected/affected with HIV/AIDS. An exciting line-up of indie-artist performances, honorees and presenters will be announced in the coming weeks.
Hosted by Bishop Oliver Clyde Allen III, Rashad Burgess, Avian Watson and Melissa “DJ M” Scott, the Pure Heat Community
Festival is a front seat into a spectacular gathering of minority LGBTQ people and their allies in the heart of Atlanta.
“Atlanta Black Gay Pride is a dynamic opportunity to showcase the diversity and uniqueness of the LGBT community. People from all over come to this city to celebrate themselves and others and its truly beautiful. I’ve witnessed the growth and development of our community each year and 2019 promises to be even greater than previous years,” says Traxx Girls Inc. founder, Melissa Scott.
“Atlanta Black Gay Pride provides an exceptional platform to connect the LBGT community and its allies globally. This celebration provides an opportunity to recognize our cultural differences and vast accomplishments” says Rockstars Production founder, JuJu Rock.
