“What we hold core to our beliefs if that if you are not giving space to the most marginalized in the community, it’s not really making any work or progress,” said Taylor Alxndr, one of the founders of Southern Fried Queer Pride and an Atlanta performer and activist.

The festival has a variety of events, including an art exhibition, discussion forums, a potluck and dance party. The festival ends with Sweet Tea, a queer variety show that will showcase talent from around Atlanta and the Southeast. Events run through Saturday evening.
