More than 300 people represented the Jewish community in the 45th annual Atlanta Pride parade Sunday, Oct. 11, according to estimates from SOJOURN, which organized Jewish participation in the parade and the weekend festival at Piedmont Park.
SOJOURN, the Southern Jewish Resource Network for Gender and Sexual Diversity, had 44 synagogues and other Jewish organizations as co-sponsors for the parade entry, including a float, and an informational tent. The Atlanta Jewish Times was one of the co-sponsors.
The Jewish community tent, the size of four standard tents in the festival, offered information about SOJOURN and the other Jewish organizations, especially regarding activities in support of LGBTQ people.
