Southern Fried Queer Pride is a queer and trans, arts & advocacy organization and festival based in Atlanta, GA. Built on the backbones of the Stonewall Riots, MondoHomo, queer liberation, and the radical celebration of Southern queers, SFQP offers a platform for community artists, activists, and anyone and everyone to hold space!

SFQP is a community organized and funded event. All SFQP events have a suggested $7 to $20 sliding scale door cover, however, no one will be turned away due to lack of funds. All funds raised help keep SFQP going.
