R&B singer and reality star K. Michelle will be honored during Atlanta’s Black Gay Pride “Pure Heat Community Festival.” The event takes place this Sunday, September 4 beginning at 12 p.m. at historic Piedmont Park. This year’s celebrity appearances includes Towanda and Trina Braxton, Tiffany Fox, Erica Mena, Young Dro, Victor Jackson and many more.
In addition, media personality and reality star Karamo Brown will appear at the festival on behalf of Positively Fearless, a movement from Janssen Therapeutics that celebrates being Black, gay and even HIV positive. Positively Fearless asks people to live out loud and help the community reduce the spread of HIV by encouraging people to get tested, and, for those who are HIV-positive, to take a proactive role in their health, seek treatment and stick to it.
The “Pure Heat Community Festival” is known as a free “day of unity.” The multi-cultural event will be equipped with market and food vendors, live celebrity and local performers, entertainment, educational forums, prizes & giveaways – all designed to bring together the spirit of community, pride and vision. The “Pure Heat Community Festival” is a front seat into a spectacular gathering of minority LGBTIQ people and their allies in the heart of Atlanta.
