Updated: Sep 7, 2021

Gaye Magazine celebrated Atlanta Black Gay Pride weekend with the gayes at the 2021 Pure Heat Community Festival at Piedmont Park! The 9th Pure Heat Community Festival; also known as a free “day of unity" was equipped with market and food vendors, live celebrity and local performers, entertainment, educational forums, prizes & giveaways - all designed to bring together the spirit of community, pride, and vision.

In partnership with The Vision Community Foundation, a portion of proceeds from the weekend’s festivities are used to benefit homeless LGBTQ+ youth and those impacted from HIV/AIDS.

Our team got to meet some of our loyal gayes in the park and we evem chopped it up with a few celebrities, such as Sidney Starr, Bobby Lytes, EJ King just to name a few. If you missed this year's festivities, we have graciously provided an in depth recap of all that took place!
