RSVP below to join fellow Black, Indigenous and People of Color who identify on the Queer & Trans spectrums for a community bike ride at 10:00 am, Saturday, June 2.
Across the nation, Pedal.Pulse.Pride rides will be led by and centered for Queer, Trans, Intersex, Black, Indigenous, People of Color (QTIBIPOC). Loved ones are encouraged to participate by standing in solidarity to support, sharing resources (including services and funding) and joining the ride! We especially encourage family -- chosen and blood -- to join us on the ride day.
Atlanta's will launch from Troy Davis Park (Woodruff Park) in Downtown near the fountain. This will be an easy bike ride in commemoration of QTIBIPOC lives lost locally and at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando on June 12, 2016 (Rest in Power). We will also reclaim Pride by showing a thriving community!
