The Stonewall Riots in New York City gave rise to the Gay Liberation Front and other lesbian and gay movements across the U.S., Canada and beyond. Last year, the LGBTQIA+ community celebrated the 50th Anniversary of Stonewall. 2020 will see similar celebrations from coast to coast as cities like Atlanta mark their 50th year. On this episode of TWIG, we speak with Jamie Fergerson, Executive Director of The Atlanta Pride Committee. We learn about Atlanta Pride's history, evolution and we get a teaser about big plans for it's Golden Jubilee celebration. Learn more about Atlanta Pride at www.AtlantaPride.org. Thanks for listening. #P48 #Pride48
