Teaching Kids About PRIDE & LOVE Everyday In Atlanta

It’s PRIDE month around the globe, but I am so thankful that we cherish it everyday here in Atlanta. The rainbow crosswalks in Midtown have been around about a year now, and I hadn’t yet taken the boys…so we were off.

I love the sidewalks for a million reasons, but one reason is because it’s a fun way to broach the conversations about diversity, acceptance and the power of love…with kids.

You can start the conversation here…or, like we did, use it as another tool to keep the conversation going.

I wasn’t able to get them in the photo because of the heavy weekend traffic…but I loved talking with them about the meaning of this gorgeous art.

Want another tool for discussing sexual diversity with kids? Head to Disney to see their new PRIDE ears and other treats…these ears are in California AND Florida. yay!

Finally – looking for one more way to celebrate this month?

The Atlanta Gay Men’s Chorus is bringing Broadway back to the stage with its second appearance at Out Front, Atlanta’s LGBT theatre hub.

Featuring favorite songs from Broadway revivals like Hairspray and Falsettos to the greatest hits from current shows, including Something RottenHamiltonKinky Boots, and Dear Evan Hansen, the chorus will bring back to the stage one of the things it does best: Broadway!

Tickets left for shows on June 29 & 30 – get them here!
