Birmingham– This past week(June 2nd- June 11th) Alabama celebrated Gay Pride in Birmingham. Central Alabama Pride, Inc. (CAP) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization committed to spreading the message of equality each year with the production of LGBT Pride events which also brings together all Alabama citizens. They also support HIV/AIDS service organizations throughout the year such as Birmingham AIDS Outreach, AIDS Alabama and the 1917 Clinic Patient Assistance Fund.

Although I didn’t get to attend all the pride events the support was in the air throughout the city and all over social media. I was able to attend the 39th Annual Pride Parade that took place Saturday evening.  It was tons of organizations and people that was represented in the parade like Aids Alabama, State Rep. Patricia Todd, Birmingham AIDS Outreach, Mayoral Candidate Randall Woodfin, Steel City Men’s Courus, Brighton Mayor Brandon Dean, and so many more. The Hub: Birmingham hosted a after parade event that attracted many of the parade goers with drinks, food, and games. The Hub is a welcoming, comfortable space for young gay, bisexual and Trans men. I was happy to see so much of the urban community in attendance, being that CAP Board didn’t any Africans Americas present this year.

DSCF6025Local party promoters PreppyOwl Ent and ScorpionKing Productions took over the night life Saturday. They hosted a event at Club Reflections, with tons of special guest. A  few cast-mates of the all new web series LIT was in the building like the infamous Rico Pruitt, Gorgious Montana, Javontaee Brownlee, and producer Corey Knott. The self proclaim Xaddy himself, Vixen Corvinus, International Exotic entertainer also was in the building.

My hopes is to see this event grow and expand for the future. Check out some pictures and videos from the weekend below.
