To celebrate Pride Month, Yelp Atlanta partnered with TAYLOR ALXNDR (she/they), co-founder of the organization Southern Fried Queer Pride. “Southern Fried Queer Pride (SFQP) is an Atlanta-based (on Muscogee & Cherokee land) organization empowering Black queer and QTPOC centered communities in the South through the arts.
Southern Fried Queer Pride (SFQP) was born out of a lack of space for Black and brown queer folks to build community, a lack of queer art, and in opposition of the established narrative of Southern queers.”
On June 22, the SFQP founder herself brought us a history lesson on the drag scene, specifically the way it emerged right here in the ATL. Yelp Atlanta hosted Yelpers from across the nation to listen to TAYLOR’s expertise. She also shared her closet and fabrication studio with us during the event!
