Atlanta Pride Weekend was full of activities including the 2013 Pure Heat Community Festival. I had a chance to stop by in the midst of all of my other events including LudaDay Weekend. Needless to say… I was too EXHAUSTED to breathe Sunday night. LOL!
Pure Heat Community Festival showcases the different meaning of unity with pride. We celebrate a unifying force that provides the resources to promote and accomplish goals in HIV/AIDS awareness & prevention, human rights, education, outreach and a better understanding within our community of people from ALL walks of life. We showcase skills, talents and vision with alternative innovation through the production of The Pure Heat Community Festival.
Equipped with Market and Food Vendors, a hair show, sponsor moments, community forums, giveaways, performers & a world re-noun artist, our day of unity brings together a collective spirit of community. We are honored to utilize this opportunity to bring awareness of a community impacted by HIV/AIDS, and spearhead campaigns towards Environment Protection, Youth Mentorship, Education & Career Advancement, Women’s Health & Wellness, and Homelessness Transition. The Pure Heat Community Festival is a front seat into an awesome gathering of minority LGBT people and allies in the nation.
The festival was filled with great food, family carnival for the kiddies, face painting and balloons, Fashion Shows including Kontrol Magazine, performances including Jade Novah and Pure Sky, appearance by Taj of SWV, tributes to PHCF Award Recipient Brandy and SO much more! Enjoy the pics I snapped 🙂
