Pride for the river, pride for each other

Everyone deserves to feel safe, welcomed, and valued in and around the Chattahoochee River. Out on the Hooch is a way for members and allies of the LGBTQIA+ community to gather, online and on the river, in celebration of our shared love for this incredible outdoor space.

Sharing why we’re Out on the Hooch

We all have a story to share. Hearing how others connect to the Chattahoochee can re-establish this outdoor space as an inclusive community for all. Post a video or photo explaining why you’re #OutOnTheHooch on social media to help spread the word.

Reclaiming space on the river and beyond

Hikes, paddles, cleanups, and more are in the works for all those who want to be Out on the Hooch. Stay tuned!

In the meantime, come see us at ColGay Pride on June 4 and 5 and at Atlanta Pride on October 8 through 10.
