2020 took us all on a WILD ride – isolation, being away from the collective community, navigating an unknown future. Despite the trials and tribulations, we saddled up and rode into 2021 with hope and drive! And now we have arrived in a better and brighter place!
The Southern Fried Queer Pride 2021 Festival is here, happening June 24th thru June 27th in Atlanta, GA, and celebrating 7 FRIED YEARS of queering Atlanta and the South through the arts and community. Even moreso, it means working to fill the void that was 2020 with events that inspire hope, mutual aid, joy, and so much more!

Southern Fried Queer Pride (SFQP) is an Atlanta-based non-profit organization empowering Black queer and QTPOC centered communities in the South through the arts.
The SFQP 2021 Festival is a community organized and funded event. All events are free or have a suggested cover. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. All profit from the festival pays the artists and organizers, as well as helps fund the CLUTCH Community Center, a Black queer owned community space that we aim to establish by 2022.
You can support this festival and the CLUTCH Community Center by:

Because we are in a pandemic, our festival will take place in socially distanced, outdoor spaces or in limited capacity indoor spaces. MASKS ARE REQUIRED AT ALL EVENTS. Our entertainment based events will also offer online options where the event can be streamed and viewed. Please check out each event for details on the specifics of each event. PPE will also be offered at every event.
As a community organization, we aim to be as accessible as possible. Each event of the festival will have accessibility information listed in the event descriptions and on our website. Certain events require RSVP, which will allow you to request ASL interpretation and other accessibility assistance. All of our events Friday thru Sunday will have quiet rooms, noise cancelling earplugs, moderate to no fast-moving lights, and more to help make this event as accessible as possible. If you have any accessibility request, email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
All events for the festival are all ages except for HAWT SAUCE: A Queer Dance Party which is 18+. All other events are all ages, but attendee discretion is advised. Please check out each event for content information, content warnings, and more info.
