Thousands of supporters of gay rights paraded down Peachtree Street waving rainbow flags Sunday at the 49th annual Atlanta Pride Festival.

By David W. Virtue, DD www. Episcopal participation in Gay Pride parades is not new. Episcopal bishops from New York to San Francisco have been regular habitues at such events, praising and supporting the LGBTQ community in all its pretentious colorful array and full precocious public acclamation of pansexuality.

In response to the video of a little boy "twerking" at Pride celebrations in Brazil; the ire it is causing and how it is being exploited by anti-gay groups, let me start by saying I love and have attended Pride and I understand its significance as 1 a defiant march to show the world that LGBT people are actual human beings from all walks of life and are unafraid and unashamed of who we are 2 a walk of commemoration of our heroes and triumph over centuries of hate, injustice 3 a platform to highlight existing issues that still need to be addressed to ensure we are in fact free and equal citizens of our respective countries to which we pledge allegiance, contribute our taxes, contribute our intellectual, creative, charitable efforts and sometimes even our very lives in its defense. Any opportunity to unload burdens of repression and revel in one's personal freedom is often a far more powerful and immediately empowering experience than making a serious statement. I can grasp the dichotomy of the festival on a particularly visceral level because I was raised in Trinidad and Tobago where Carnival is a similar mix of serious themes of old tradition and the wild hedonistic celebration of freedom.
The festival culminates with the annual Pride parade down Peachtree Street on Sunday at noon. Because of that, it has also been the target of anti-gay protesters. They hold signs denouncing gay people and often scream homophobic slurs through megaphones at festival participants near the entrances of the park and along the parade route.
