Atlanta Pride Party A Potential COVID-19 Superspreader Event?

Vancouver, BC (UhmazingPress) — Last night a video of a circuit party at Atlanta Pride circulated on twitter showing a huge crowd of partygoers, topless and visibly observing zero social distancing in a closed venue.

This comes at a time when the U.S. is experiencing a surge in new coronavirus infections, with 60,000 new cases, the highest it’s been since May.

As the news spread around Twitter, it was meet with disgust and condemnation. Drag Race alum, India Ferrah, revealed she was contacted by the event organizer to appear in the event. But according to her, “it fell through.” When asked by other alums to reveal the name of the event organizer, she shared a screenshot of the conversation, naming Adam Gordon as the person who contacted her. In the conversation, Gordon indicated that he booked other talents such as Nina Flowers, Mayhem Miller, Sasha Colby and Drew G.

The event is said to observe social distancing, and safety precautions was going to be enforced. Unfortunately, the video of the dancefloor shows otherwise. Another leg of the event will take place tonight, featuring Drag Race alum, Mayhem Miller.

Atlanta eased gathering restrictions since last summer but with certain limitations.
