Savannah Pride, Inc.
History of Savannah Pride WITH THE CEILING OF SPANISH MOSS AND PEOPLE OF HOSPITALITY
Savannah has been called many things. It is even famous for many more things. From being the first city of The South, to being the location for countless movies and television shows-- Savannah has shown and reinveted herself more times than Cher... and that's a lot.
So, what better a place to have a celebration of diversity? The eclectic sides that Savannah offers its' residents and tourists is something unique, charming, and a little quarky. From the ceiling of spanish moss, to the community of southern hospitality, Savannah gives rise to many types of people and environments. From country bars, to dancing night-clubs, Savannah is known for its' eclectic style and eccentric charisma.
This is when The First City Network realized something. With all her charm, charisma, and beauty, Savannah would be a prime place to hold an annual Pride Festival. The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender community would have an excellant location to celebrate and forget about the social constraints of the world-- even if for a day.
The 1st Annual Pride Festival was the initial concept by members of First City Network in 1999.
2007 Surging back with new energy and talents on the Savannah Pride Board. This years pride is gearing up to Unite the different sectors of our GLBT Community here in Savananh and the Coastal Empire. Uniting the young with the old, the black with the white and every other color under the rainbow we will have a true Unity Through Pride.
