Wanda Sykes, Tig Notaro Celebrate Pride Month In Atlanta

June is Pride Month. This year, Atlanta’s Pride Committee and the LGBT Institute at the Center for Civil and Human Rights are partnering with the Fox Theatre to celebrate the 49th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, which ignited an equal rights movement in what became the LGBT community. We spoke with Emmy Award-winning comedian Wanda Sykes, who’s headlining a comedy show at the Fox in celebration of Pride Month.


A number of events including a comedy show, a drag show and a concert with Blondie are also on the calendar for Pride celebrations in Atlanta this week.
