No city in the world hosts a bigger African-American GLBT celebration than Atlanta, which is the site of In The Life Atlanta Black Pride each year in early September - the dates this year are August 26 through September 3, 2013.

The host hotel, which is where many of the Atlanta Black Pride events will take place, is the new and conveniently located Hyatt Atlanta Midtown at 125 10th Street, formerly the Hotel Midtown, which underwent a huge renovation and rebranding eAdditionally, numerous gay bars as well as gay-popular restaurants, hotels, and shops have special events and parties throughout Pride Week.
