Diocesan Pride Events 2017

Sep 18, 2017

The Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta is proud to support these events during Pride 2017.  Click here to learn more about LGBTQ+ Ministries.


Shower of Stoles Display
View this extraordinary collection of over a thousand liturgical stoles and other sacred items, celebrating the gifts of LGBT persons who serve God in countless ways while also lifting up those who have been excluded from service because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. The collection bears witness to the huge loss of leadership that the church has brought upon itself because of its own unjust policies. Learn more.

  • The display will be shown from October 10-15, 2017

Walk (or Ride) in the Pride Parade
The Pride Parade will step off from the Civic Center MARTA Station (not the Civic Center itself) at noon on Sunday, October 15.  We will have a Diocesan contingent in the parade, including a float.  We encourage as many as possible to walk with us.  For those with mobility issues, we will have some seating on the float.  We also carry signs representing the parishes in the diocese that are welcoming and affirming to LGBTQ+ folks.  The Episcopal Contingent is always one of the most popular in the parade each year.  All are welcome to participate without regard to sexual orientation, gender, gender expression/identity, race, creed, color, etc.  ALL are welcome!
